Pretty in Pink

Yes, I finished the luscious pink mohair sweater that has been in my mind for so long.  Happy with the results, Sue looks great in it!  I used the new book I got for my birthday from "my knitting girls"and followed many of Deborah Newton's tips.  This made a big difference in the finishing of the sweater.  Here she is!
Now, the next sweater I have to focus on is for Karen!

For Sue's sweater, I rummaged through a box of old buttons.  I have a collection that I have somehow gathered from all over, some were Aunt Marion's, some Nana's, I am sure some were Aunt Kate's and of course, mommy's.  I was able to put together 8 tiny pink pearlized dome buttons which looked perfect on this sweater.  So!  A little old, a little new.  

I also had to add in a few panels on the sides of my raspberry sweater, it makes it a little bit more "swingy" as my friend Martha put it  I agreed and now I am pondering buttons, although it did not call for buttons originally. 

Elsewhere, I am still struggling with the linen cardigan that was inspired by our knitting field trip to Downtown Yarns in Manhattan.  I bought the yarn and the highly improvised upon pattern, I have knitted this sweater three times, now the fourth, I am not getting the fit right, but the linen yarn is so wonderful that I keep trying.  This time, I will get it, I am determined and hopeful because I have been sticking to one project at a time.  No more many projects at once.  As enticing as it may be to start a new project, it is like reading a book, once you get into it, you can't put it down, and if there are any distractions you lose the thread!

And finally, I did finish this afghan.  Some of these squares came from a dear friend who passed away. I do not usually work on this type of project but I wanted to finish it in memory of Nadine.

When the surface normal is Glass Teapots with Infuser reversed, the traditional vector factors toward the interior of the model as an alternative of away from it. The surface normal is the directional vector perpendicular to the surface of a 3D model. Every face has its own surface normal, and it ought to be facing outward, away from the model's surface. Therefore, to undo an extrusion, the undo command should be given twice. Failure to take action leads to non-manifold geometry and is a relatively widespread mistake for novice modelers.
