The final skein (hopefully!) for this new sweater pattern arrived on Monday, so I've been trying to work through the second sleeve. It's going pretty well so far, and as long as I don't get sick or tired or distracted I very well might have this sweater done by the weekend.
This sweater has been on the needles since September (I last blogged it in October, yikes!). It hibernated for a bit over the winter, but over the past couple of months I definitely wanted to get it finished. This is exactly the kind of sweater I want more of in my wardrobe, and I really can't wait to be able to start wearing it.
The pattern for this is pretty much all written up - I have a few more details to add in, but the meat of it is done, and I'm planning to get it to my editor this week. In a perfect world, I'd be able to release it before my knitting retreat (eight more days!), but if not, it'll still be out by the end of the month.
That's a very pretty sweater. I am also knitting a sweater, and I still lack the front bands and finishing both sleeves. It's for next winter, though, so I can take my time.ReplyDelete
