I am two rounds away from casting off the body of the sweater and beginning the sleeves. I’m not sure whether I’ll work on the sweater more this afternoon or get back to machine piecing a quilt. I’ll decide after posting this.
I got as far as pulling out one of my hand pieced quilts this past week. I spread it out and looked at it and pondered what next needed doing and that was as far as I got. I seem to have lost my hand sewing mojo. I’m sure it will come back and so I will wait until then rather than forcing it and ending up with results I don’t like.
I don’t really have anything else to post about today, so I’ll go ahead and link up to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching.
I love the way you have transitioned the new wool into your sweater. It is a perfect fit. It does look fabulous!ReplyDelete
It looks wonderful - cannot wait to see it finished!ReplyDelete
Cathy I really like the sweater you are knitting. I have a very old yarn stash ( mainly quilting now) but getting the knitting bug again. I have never in my 50 years of knitting, knitted a top down sweater and am very keen to try it. Are you pleased with the neckline. I didn't want one too high, but also not a boat style. Be keen to hear from you.ReplyDelete
