MA's Gyre

MA just finished her version of Gyre.  It's the same yarn and size as mine, but she completed the whole pattern length.  Here it is modeled by her granddaughter:

This is Gyre, exactly as written. Gorgeous.  Now compare length to mine in same yarn:

Wow.  What a difference.
Love them both.
Thanks MA for letting me photograph your trophy.

Meet Artemis:

Artemis and I have been searching for each other for, oh, let's say 15 years.  When I brought her home from the lovely store in Geneva where I found her, my husband said, wow, you've been wanting one of those forever. 

I immediately put Artemis to work in my studio, which she seems to enjoy:
Here's she's modeling the back of the entrelac cardigan I've been inventing out of Noro Taiyo sock yarn.  If you look very very closely at the right side you can see the arm scythe.  In which there will be a sleeve.  Eventually.  Artemis doesn't have arms but we'll work something out, I'm sure.

One of you faithful readers pointed out yesterday that I'd stalled out months ago here on Gyre and that I had some catching up to do. 

OK.  I'm on it.  As you can see.
