Sweaters, Sweaters, and More UNFINSIHED Sweaters
Casual Cable Cardigan in Ultra Alpaca. Started last Sunday. Purchased yarn last Friday. Obviously my resistance to wait to cast on was in the negative. It is knitted in one piece to the armholes. Judie from FNKN completed hers start to finish in about ten days last spring. I don't think that I'm going to hit that mark. The dark yarn makes it difficult to knit in dim light.
My lace drops sweater in muskat. I started it a couple of weeks ago with the intention of having the ribbing done prior to the class for it. I hit that goal. The class has since been post poned to a later date. So, technically I'm okay on this one. My next row will be the start of the lace. This is scheduled, by the class dates, to be completed after the first of the year.
Another drops sweater. I'm doing it in butterfly 10 (my favorite cotton) I started it on my to Harborview when the Teenager got in his accident. The sleeve went great. The body, which is knitted in one piece until the armholes, has been ripped I think going on 4 times. This last time I ripped about 4 1/2 inches out at 200 stitches. The problem: guage and casting on a size smaller than I needed.
Hmmm. When did a Night at the Muesum come out on DVD? That is when I started this one. It's a Vogue pattern done in Softwist. I really should focus on it as it is further along than any of the others. My problem: I don't know if it will fit. The one piece in the upper left (that looks like a sleeve) is actually one of the front pieces.
Drops again. Do you think that I'm a Drops girl or what? This one is just low. A cable row every 5th row and a cable every.... well you can see the cables. The yarn... garnstudio alpaca and glitter held together. This one though.... has had lots of photo shoots!
