The yarn is here.
I’ll spend a penitential Good Friday knitting more Tannehill sleeve. I’ve finished the fast-seeming part above the wrist and am now mired in the instruction to increase at each end of every 6th row 13 times.
And then at the weekend I’ll knit another lozenge or two – first, I must chart them. Shandy (comment yesterday), I think the lozenge patterns are all different, front and back. As far as I can judge from the picture on the J&S website, the sleeves re-use the patterns although not necessarily in the same order. Maureeninfargo would know. I’ll look again tomorrow at her pictures, and those of the other Raveller who has knit it.
(Jamieson & Smith’s pattern, we now know, is the one Jen A-C reconstructed from the original in the Shetland Museum.)
Why do you think it was originally knit flat? Is that something I paid insufficient attention to in the pictures Jen A-C posted on her blog? That would be most unusual. I’d better have another look at them, too.
The new yarns are pretty good. “Flugga white” has a slight yellowish cast to it – no harm in that. The grey I have ordered to replenish the darkish grey I have been using, appears far too light – but it may turn out, in practice, that there is no harm in that, either. It’s not as if I were switching yarns in mid-sweater. The gentle green which is teamed with “tangerine” in the peerie is not the same as the one I have been using.
Kathy has some J&S jumper weight, although not the full range. If I don’t like the next lozenge, I may well be able to better the grey and perhaps the green there.
I got down to Tesco’s this afternoon and bought the last package of Hot Cross Buns. At least we will observe Easter to that extent.
