Another super exciting fun knitblog

  • November Knit Goals

    I'm prone to being a scatterbrain, so I try to make a short list of things to accomplish each month (lest I have 27 different non matching socks).

    Same as last month: Sleep more. Study more. Knit more. Sleep more.

Another New Sweater

Posted by Amber on January 14, 2007

I recently joined a Sweater A Month knit along. I’ve been starting sweaters like crazy, figuring that starting is the hard part – one I have them going I can easily finish a side of a cardigan or a sleeve or two in a weekend.

The most recent sweater to start is Jenna Wilson’s Rogue, in some handspun I got in Baltimore. It’s very rustic yarn, the kind of yarn that makes wool-haters say “But wool is scratchy!”, so I’m adding more ease than I normally do – almost 3 inches. This way I can wear a long sleeve shirt under it, and not be bothered.

I started on Friday, and spent almost all day yesterday at Judy’s watching “House” and working on it. I was almost to the cap shaping, which I then finished up this morning. I can start the second sleeve later tonight, and work on it all day tomorrow, and probably finish it up on Tuesday. The body is in the round, so that should go fairly fast, as long as I pay close attention to the cables, and don’t have to tink back rows at a time. Not sure that the whole sweater will be done by Feb 1 (since I do have classes starting). But maybe.

Here’s a close up of the cable on the sleeve. It’s so hard to take a good photo in the Bat Cave. In person, the yarn is a little less bright blue, and more like a medium sky blue.
