chic knits knitting patterns

A sleeve is a happy thing :)

A knitted sleeve made with one’s own hands even more jolly!

It also intrigues and amuses one’s busmates on the CTA #66! No longer is there confusion about what you might be doing or making.

It’s a sweater!

And even in the humidity and dank air of the bus, viewers are refreshed because 99.9% of the hot sweaty passengers who gaze on le Sleeve are thinking of the coming winter.

They most likely say, “Yes, it will be cool soon…”

And they Feel cooler instantly thinking about it…

Regardless, it is the Wishful Fickle Thinking of the Regular Midwesterner. As soon as its hot, they long for the cold. When it’s cold, they fantasize about the heat. Even on a day such as Tuesday, which was almost perfect, several people commented to me that it was “more likes September, than August” which for me is a lively thumbs up, but for them was a not really.

I’m already on to the second sleeve; it goes at the max about two inches a ride at a relative speed of 35 mph on Chicago Avenue, faster once we get to Michigan Ave and really blazing when nearing my stop. Coming and going its always a race to the end of the round at Ashland or Huron especially on those times when I’m daydreaming generally about the winter or the fit of Phelps racer suit.

This sweater is the Basic Chic Hoodie which is available from retailers …HERE’s a List… (please call first for availibity). No ETA for a downloadable; am totally swamped with a deadline project in the house…

    “…or the fit of Phelps racer suit.”

    I tell ya, that’s been wreaking havoc on my yarn-overs recently. ;)

    It’s the same here in Oregon. Yesterday it was 101 degrees, today it will reach 103, then next Tuesday it’s rumored that it might be around 74. My poor old body is confused with the up and down temps.
    Working on your ‘Basic Puli’ and loving every stitch.
    Thank you for sharing your designing talents.

    Thank you so!! I am thrilled knitters are having fun with the Basic Chic series…

    I totally want to visit Black Sheep. I have never been to Massachusetts and am trying to plan a trip there next year.
