Remember all those posts about how sweater knitting just doesn’t work for me? Yeah, well – fall is coming. And I just can’t get away from the call of sweater knitting.
That’s 10 hanks of Berroco Ultra Alpaca (bought 3? 4? years ago) for Paul and 8 hanks of Berroco Vintage for me.
I cast on for Paul’s sweater last weekend – Dylan Goes Electric from IK Summer 2005. The first hank knit up quickly and I’m already on hank two. I have no illusions – at some point this project will become the bane of my knitting, so I’m taking advantage of the new-knit excitement.
And once that newness fades, I have some Berroco Vintage (in first pic above) at the ready for me.
It’s been a long time since I last posted but I have been collecting links. Here are some links from a few weeks ago.
- If you like Color Affection, check out daisyknits’ version (love the grey/yellow/pink combo!)- and make sure you read her notes on how she made the edges work better for her.
- Andi finished her self-striping socks. Handdyed, even stripes. Love em!
- And Jesse finished her rainbow striped Felici socks. Yes, I am on a self-striping stalking bender.
- Julia Trice’s Mexican Wedding shawl (below) has a great decorative edging knitted lengthways of the shawl. It would work great as a scarf too – and wow, that red!
