OK, so I didn’t make my self-imposed deadline of this weekend for Rogue. BUT – I did make good progress. I’m half way through the hood. I gotta tell ya – that hood is S-L-O-W. I’m not sure if it’s the wider cable or just the fact that the fun factor on this project is fading. Probably a bit of both.
Oh, and while I was at Barnes and Noble I couldn’t miss perusing the knitting book aisle. I bought 1000 Sweaters. I just love all the options they give ya. Just look at some of the samples:
And the book is split so you can pick a body on the top portion of the book, and then pick sleeves and a neckline from the bottom:
Pretty nice, huh?
It would be nice if they gave more gauge options (similar to Designs by Judith patterns). The only gauge the book uses is 22 sts/4 inches. I can still see changing it to suit another yarn, it just means breaking out the calculator and doing a little math. But still, I think this book is a great addition to my growing collection of knitting books.
