First off, no Eris is not done. I'll take it with me to the cottage tonight and give it the old college try, but I hate sewing zippers and with the weather being so lovely (ie not sweater weather) I'm just not that motivated. Also, I have learned from painful experience not to do hard stuff like zippers at night--crooked zippers are not good. So it just has to wait.
Instead I will distract you with something pretty. I got out all my Art Fibers yumminess and started a wrap. I wanted something interesting to knit and visually appealing and found it in the Colinette wrap from the Holiday 2003 VK (it's the one on the colour). It has been a bit of a bitch to knit (these yarns are slippery and loose on 9mm needles) but the effect is stunning. It's just a seafoam stitch with random yarn changes, but the wavy effect is nifty.
It'll look great with my new black pants and a sexy little top. Or over the sweater I plan on making with my just arrived Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Astrakhan. This is lovely squooshy stuff. I will use it to make this sweater from the Fall 2005 VK.
I bought the mid-blue (colour 11) and it's a bluey-grey almost denim colour. Did I mention it's squooshy and soft?
I might blog again this weekend, but I can't say for sure. Happy Labour Day!
