FLAK Update

I bypassed sleeve island.

I cheated!
Bill's FLAK is going to be a vest.

I must have some mental blocks about knitting sleeves. However, I think the vest would look just as nice, and he will wear it more often (I hope).

This is what I have so far:

Well, it will be a v-neck vest. No buttons either. I don't know how to make button bands yet. Instead of casting on additional stitches in one row as per the cardigan/pullover, I gradually added on the stitches to make the vest armholes. The armholes will be deeper but I think that will be okay once I add the armhole ribbing.

I am now in the body shop.

I think it is really nice with the Black Water Abbey yarn. The color is Bracken.

A small progress on SAM

I have not been working on him that much. But Sam the Ram now has his four little legs waiting to be grafted on.

Hang in there, Sam. Maybe this weekend.

In the meantime my yard is a mess!

Marphy's law: When the peonies bloom, it rains.

My peonies flopped all over the place. So I cut and put them in a vase to bring inside:

Aren't they pretty?

And of course Runty has to check them out.

I'd better get back to work. More later.

Your flak looks great. I am also avoiding sleeve island. I am making a vest with a zipper in front. Progress is slow though.
Cant wait to see it done.
