I was cutting it close. Friday, February 28th, I was supposed to send off Karen's Trillium body, that was my deadine, but I wasn't quite ready. I contacted UPS and was relieved to find out that I had until noon on Saturday the 1st to ship for a Monday the 3rd delivery.
Karen's Trillium arrived in Berkeley the same day as I received the sleeves for my Lila sweater. It was a fun mail day for both of us!
Since I was so busy working on Trillium I had not even started on Lila, I had only done swatches. Thank goodness Lila is a fairly simple knit, basically all stockinette except for a small garter border along the hem. I did run into one little hiccup but after consulting with the knitting community I decided to proceed without making any changes. I am also little nervous about the size I chose. I am a 33" bust but casted on for the 35" size since I like the look of the sweater that had 3" of positive ease on the model. After reading Felicia's blog post I am doubting my decision.
I am about .5" away from joining my sleeves (thank you, Karen!) to the body and would probably be at that point by now but we had a sweet little surprise yesterday morning that kept me busy. But I feel confident that I will be wearing Lila this Saturday at VK Live!
This crazy idea that we had to do the Tag Team Sweater Project was quite daunting in the beginning, I wasn't sure if agreeing to do it was the right decision. Would I really be able to make the deadline? Will Karen be happy with my knitting? Let me just say that I am SO happy I said yes to the project! I have had a blast and have learned so much. Thank you to my knitting buddy, Karen Templer!
