It was nice to have a few days away from Rainy NH. After a horrendous rain/hail filled ride to the show, we really enjoyed the mild sunny days that we had in New Jersey.
Both Cleo and Skyy did well. Skyy won her class both days and made the cut for Winner's Bitch and Cleo did well to place third in a very nice class, especially given that she was shown without her clothes. Poor little nekked Cleo is completely out of coat...but her turn will come :)
I did manage to get quite a bit of knitting done on this trip as well. The ride down took an extra long time and that time was well spent working on Hey Teach.
I mentioned earlier that I had not worked with many of the Rowan yarns and was looking forward to working with this All Season Cotton Yarn . I have to tell you it has been a pleasure to knit with. Very thick and cushy with no splitting.
It's been a nice change of pace to work on something other than socks and shawls. Historically I have not been very good at getting the sizing correct in sweaters for myself, so I tend to avoid them. I am hoping that all of the measurements that I took ahead of time and the swatching I did will help me get it right. If nothing else this pattern has been a joy to work on!
