This sweater is brought to you by the letter Z

Z as in zombie.

This weekend was my last big hurrah before I buckle down and get to the dirty business of packing and cleaning our apartment. I haven’t been knitting as much as I had been in the previous months, and this weekend I got back to it, knitting my way through SEVEN zombie movies. By the end of yesterday I finished the body of my February Lady Sweater, and today I started on the first sleeve.

I love this sweater. It’s fun to knit, and is turning out so pretty. I don’t know if I mentioned it yet, but I’m using Araucania Nature Wool. And in case you’re curious, the movies I watched were Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, Day of the Dead, Land of the Dead, Diary of the Dead, and the remakes of Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead.

The buttons I bought for the sweater are wood, and I got them at Ram Wools in Winnipeg during my visit earlier this month. Attaching them will be the very last thing I do before finishing the sweater, but I love them so much I wanted to show them to you now.

There may be one more post before we move, but I can’t promise anything. We close on our house on November 7th, but on the 6th I’ll be leaving for Nashville for a week. Part of the time I’ll be at a work conference and the other I’ll be visiting my dear Aunt Judi. I get back on the 12th, we’ll probably do most of the moving on the 13th and 14th, and I’ll spend the rest of the month lost in my own house.

    The Lady looks lovely in green. That’s a lot of zombie movies! I saw your twitters about zombie movies, too funny.

    Good luck with the closing and move; here’s to it all going smoothly! A lot of work, but it will be so worth it.

    I love Land of the Dead. Dennis Hopper has the most hilarious moment in it. You probably know the moment I’m talking about. Good luck with all your house stuff! The Nature wool is a perfect choice for that sweater.

    Ok…I don’t get the attraction to zombie movies but the sweater is beautiful. Holding our breath until November 7th and it is all over and the house is really YOURS…well you and Nathans that is. Love you!
