Exciting developments are afoot on both Meanwhile in Maine projects! First up, the fiber:
(insert trumpet sound) The mental block broke!!! I’ve been knitting like crazy and am already finished the body, first stab at the collar (it’ll need just a touch of tweaking), and last night I started the first sleeve. Check out Antionette’s live replay for a sneak peek. Since she surprised me by putting me on camera yesterday (without any warning, mind you), I thought I’d share the WIP I had to work on during her live.

As you can see in the video, I did add a little cable detail to the front, which originally was planned to only have a dart. I liked this little detail as a way to start the dart.
The dart also went through a tweak. Originally the 2 st detail was embedded directly into the seed stitch background. However, more often than not, it got lost. So, I added a stitch on either side to really make it pop. Check out the difference!
Now for the build:
We’re dried in with a finished roof!
There is more roofing to be done – the utility building and porches, but it is so exciting to pass this long-awaited milestone! The electrical and plumbing should be finished next week.
