Heeny Knitting

H1N1 just sounds so...I don't know, scientific? I think "heeny" sounds a bit more friendly. I happened to get it right after getting back from New Orleans, and thanks to my hypochondriacal husband I got hooked up with some anti-viral medication within 24 hours of getting it. The meds kicked right in and kept the flu from getting out of control. I spent six days at home in the care of Warden Walt and since he didn't want me to spread my germs into the kitchen (or anywhere for that matter), I the better part of my time at home embedded on my couch, knitting a sweater.

I started this sweater ages ago but got little more than the collar done before I got sick.

WIP Ingenue

I completed the torso and most of one sleeve (which I subsequently ripped out because the colourway on the ball of yarn I had attached was a little too bright a transition); this is the reknit sleeve number one. Since I returned to work, progress has slowed up a bit -- especially since I've had lots of social things on the go (more about those things later). Luckily the weather has been very warm, so I haven't had to regret not yet finishing this sweater!

WIP Ingenue

The sweater is Ingenue by Wendy Bernard from her book Custom Knits. I'm knitting it in Tanis Fiber Arts Green Label Aran Weight in Amber. The actual colour is better represented in the first picture.

Leah had it too - around the same time you did.
