It's the little things, you see.
Matching stripes across set-in sleeves is getting to be a bit of a fetish for me. The math to figure it out is straightforward enough, but there's still that moment of pleased suprise - adding up hypotenuses is never as exciting as matching the finished cap and armscye up and finding that they work, they actually work. Almost as though they were, you know, meant for each other.
The yarn is Phildar Crochet, a soft, skinny cotton 3-ply. It's not mercerized, and it's rather loosely spun - wonderfully lightweight and summery, but prone to pilling, even at the close gauge I'm working. Ah, well.
I'm headed to the beach for a week of sandcastles, steamed crabs and sunburn - and piles of work, work, work. I'll have wireless access there, so see you then!
