They were such a fun and fast knit. Hopefully they will keep the recipients tootsies nice and warm this winter.
Eventually this will become Vixynn. I purchased the pattern from Knit Picks a couple of weeks ago. The yarn is also from Knit Picks and is Comfy Mist in the colorway Ditto. It is a cotton/acrylic blend and oh so soft. The pattern is done much differently than any other top down sweater I have done. You do the back and then pick up stitches from the cast on edge of that, to do the front. It has a boat neck so I can see why she made it this way. Also, I will be able to make the neck opening to my preferences this way too.
Saturday, I woke up to a wonderful RA flare. Luckily I always have meds on had to treat it when it happens. The meds took about 6 hours to finally kick in full force. Hubby and I were able to go to Mass. Afterwards, we went to visit some friends of ours. The husband has cancer and just started chemo. It has made him quite ill. We thought visiting with them would help take their mind off of all the illness for a little while. We had quite a few laughs and enjoyed being with them.
