Na Craga

Or otherwise know as B’s sweater.

Both the front and back ribbing are done. Progress to the tune of 2 pattern repeats has been done on the front. Ribbing and 1 pattern repeat done on a sleeve. I had the brilliant idea to start the sleeves at work and leave them there so that I don’t have to drag the entire project back and forth between work and home. There is the added advantage of the sleeves being close to done when the front and back are wrapped up. Thus avoiding the sweater burn out syndrome which I often encounter.

My reward for finishing a pattern repeat on the body of the sweater is doing 2 rows of mystic waters. If lace is my first love, certainly cables are my second!

I wouldn’t really recommend an alpaca/silk blend for this sweater though, the merino worked much better to show off the cables.

Two Wolves

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.
He said, “My son, the battle is between two “wolves” inside us all.
One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.
The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather “Which wolf wins?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”
