The blog’s been a little thin lately, unfortunately. I’ve been working on some really cool patterns for you guys, but unfortunately, I can’t share them with you yet. (Actually, I signed a contract that said I have to keep them secret. I’m really excited about this, but I realize it makes me sound a little like a tool.) Soon enough, you’ll get to see what I’m working on.
Well, I’ve been knitting away, between other projects, getting a few rows done every day, and the sweater is growing. It’s a top-down sweater, and I’ve gotten the shoulders and body done down to right around the belly-button. It’s an extremely detailed pattern, a little more complicated than I usually pick out, but the sweater is coming along marvelously.
I’m absolutely in love with the cable that runs down the back of the sweater (even though it’s a huge pain in the butt). And the yarn I’m using (Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Superwash) is doing a fantastic job of showing the cable at its best.
(Oh my god! Just now, looking at the two photographs, I realized that I did the surrounding cables wrong! See how the two surrounding cables on the yellow sweater twist in different directions? Mine both twist in the same direction. Shoot! I guess I’ve got some thinking to do. Should I let it go, and just live with the cables the way they are, or should I pull out the cable, and reknit it the other direction? What do you think?)
So, that’s what’s on my needles. What are you working on? I’d love to hear about your projects. And, if you want to send me a photo (firstname.lastname@example.org), I’d love to share your knitting with everybody else on the blog.
