Spring Cleaning Extension

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.

  1. The sock looks great. And the book is interesting as well. Sitting and knitting at Barnes and Noble sounds very nice. I can’t wait to see Rogue finished. :)

  2. I was at Borders last night and I was contemplating that book… I sorta just looked at its spine and said maybe next time. And now I am saying maybe definitely next time.

  3. Didn’t make the deadline to finish Rogue, either. But one sleeve is growing slowly and the body is done. I’m determined to do it by the end of the month (and maybe sooner). If we give up we’ll never get it done!
