Sleeves

Swallowtail is currently in solitary confinement (details tomorrow)--and I'm knitting sleeves in stockinette for therapy.



These sleeves have big plans to become a sweater fit for a young knight:

I've always wanted to use that motif on something- can't wait to see the sweater!

Ooh, a castle sweater for a young knight - what a great idea! Does he have a knitted halberk and all that jazz yet?

I can never watch the Russian version of King Lear without getting completely distracted by the garter-stitch "armor"...I've always wanted to make some just for the heck of it.

Knitting sometimes benefits from a Time Out. It will learn manners...

That's going to be one cute sweater!

What kind of hat would go well with a knight's sweater?

Love the concept of solitary confinement, but around here there isn't room to isolate the bad'uns. They just get crammed in a basket with a bunch of other forlorn messes. --Syl

That Castle is amazing.

Oh, that's a great idea! He'll be thrilled. Does he know?

Whoa.
My mother made a sweater for me when I was little using that very mofit! It was a red and fuzzy vest, and I'm wearing it in my first grade school portrait. I really, really loved that sweater. And wore it (with a black turtleneck underneath) all the time.

Th fact that you're using the same motif I loved as a child makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside :) I can't wait to see the FO.

Um, I meant motif, not mofit. Although a mofit does sound like it could be something interesting.
