Sugar Maple progress

You remember Sugar Maple, right?

Sugar Maple 09-29It’s been over a month since I last worked on her.  I just need to do the hip increases and figure out how to make a straight bottom.

In other words, I still have a chance of getting this done in time for Rhinebeck.

I have to thank Christy for the motivation.  She let me know that she’s almost done with her cabled pullover to wear to Rhinebeck.  Hearing that just made me realize how much I want to wear a handknit on the fairgrounds that Saturday.

I still have a decent amount of work to do, and as I knit doubts creep in over whether this unusual shape will

  • look good on my body shape
  • fit well

Those doubts make me procrastinate working on Sugar Maple and find excuses to cook, start new projects and *gasp* even clean.

I just need to power through and try to make it work.  The yarn is awesome – hello cashmere – and the colors are SO me.

I’m going to think about the yarn and the colors and knit a bit more.

I’ll catch you on the purl side.

  1. I was going to say the same thing – “short rows.” Not that I know how to design with them, but I assume that will get you the straight hem, right? It might mess up the color changes though… Hmm, I see the issue now. Good luck!
