On the Needles, October 18, 2013
Pinery sweater. It is knitted from the top down, and I'm loving the looks of the cables. It's worsted weight, so it's going fairly quickly. I'm not 100% happy with the way the neck is laying. There isn't any ribbing, or leading edge before the cables start, so the cast on stitches are really pulling. I might end up doing some kind of edge finish once it is done, but I'll have to wait and see how it looks once done and blocked.
I spent a little time on Ravelry the other day... actually over an hour... ummmmmm, it might have been a little more than an hour....what a time gobbler that place is, but fun!. And I found a whole pile of fun little boy sweaters. I'm planning on going through my yarn stash, which actually isn't all that large, to see if I have yarn to do some of them. There's a Spiderman, and I know I have red yarn. There's one with a truck which would be perfect for Avery. He loves all things trucks. And then there's a dinosaur fair isle pattern. And I found the cutest owl sweater. There isn't enough time in one life to do all the quilts I want to do, let alone adding all the knitting I want to do. Somehow, I'm going to have to do some prioritizing........ any suggestions?? I'm linking up to Judy's On the Needles.
