Sunday Knitting

P1010003All that remains to knit for my Madison Coat are the collar and pocket linings.  I'm about a third of the way done with the collar.  One begins it by picking up stitches then working six rows with number 10s.   I used bamboo 10s for this, and wow, did that yarn slide!  Note to self: for the next big, bulky project use bamboo, not plastic.

Notice how the Manos almost matches the futon cover (actually, they match better in person.)  I think this means that instead of hanging the coat in the closet, I can use it as a living room accessory.  Ever heard of a car coat?  This one's a couch coat!

Anyway, the good news is that there is a noticeable improvement in my wrist this week.  The tightness and soreness are gone.  In most circumstances it feels normal, with a slight twinge if I lift a heavy plate, or something like that.

Still, why push it?  Knitsmiths knitting will be the only knitting I do this weekend.  This week I'll be busy with Thanksgiving preparations and traveling, and that will cut into knitting time, too.  That's okay.  That's what books are for :-).
