a steeking Guernsey! The camera can never decide what color this yarn is, regardless of light conditions.
The hearth, next to one of my spinning wheels is a comfy spot for Guernsey this afternoon. She's getting a little chilly now that her steeks are, well, they're being separated. Not the one you see on the right arm or the left arm. Those two are still intact. I thought perhaps a back shot of the patterning there would be a mite intriguing. (Click on any shot for a closer look.)
Turn around for another shot and...there's a front cut open! I know, when did Guernsey last appear here? It was before the 3-needle bind off shoulder seams and certainly before cutting the two front steeks, one up the middle and one for the neckline.
I hope you can see that in this third picture I am knitting up stitches on the front left. Not picking up, but knitting up at a two to three ratio so that there will be a nice garter bump as the base for the garter stitch button band.
