Progression on Two Fronts

Category: Miscellaneous | Posted: Sun Feb 18, 2018 2:45 am

I have made some progress with the Mir Ist Kalt sweater. I am a mere inch and a half from closing the body of the sweater out. From there, I'll start the sleeves.

On the plant front, I am ripening a whole container of Mega Cherry Tomatoes. This is my first full harvest of the year and it looks to be a good one. At first, I thought the tomatoes weren't going to turn but they once again astounded me with their amazing abilities. From full-on green, they began to take on the familiar rosy color of a blushing ripening tomato fruit. Now one is all but completely red while the others are fast approaching the same color.

Just a quick post. I hope everyone is doing well and having a happy time.

Is the sweater a present? Good job!

@Frank Hi, Frank!


This sweater is a gift in the sense that it is a gift for me. I normally make things for others. This is the first large garment I've made for myself since I started knitting in 2006 that isn't acrylic or a shawl.

Thanks for commenting! :)

Sometimes you just need to treat yourself!

2018 is going to be that year. With very few exceptions, I'm only knitting, crocheting and weaving for myself and my mother. :)
