off to the frog pond

A few days ago I talked gazerwolf into building me a swift from PVC pipe. It ended up considerably bigger than we'd expected, but works quite well.

So last night I finally frogged my nearly-done Sonnet body, resulting in this pile of rainbow yarn. It was my first attempt at upsizing a pattern, and I overestimated by quite a bit. I'd finished the whole body (except for the buttonhole band) before I pinned the shoulders together to try it on. Darn thing fit like a circus tent. *sigh*

I untied the knots as I came to them, so this was nine full skeins of Red Heart Mexicana. I've balled up three so far (thanks to a PVC nostepinne made from swift leftovers) but had to stop and give my shoulder a rest.
