Yarny Goodness!

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.

More Rogue

Posted by Amber on January 20, 2007

Thank you everyone for all the nice comments on Janda! I wish Blogger worked like Livejournal, and I could respond to each of you. Alas.

I mentioned the SweaterAMonth KAL I joined – I should also mention that this isn’t like Secret Pal or similar things, I’m not going to be black listed if I don’t finish a sweater a month (or 12 sweaters in 12 months, since with school I KNOW there’s no way I’ll knit a whole sweater in say, February, although there’s a good chance I’ll knit two in July). There isn’t a prize if you do 12 sweaters. It’s more like a support group for the clearly insane (12 sweaters?! What are we thinking?!).

So, with one down and 11 to go, I present Rogue Sleeves!
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Color accurate AND in focus! A first!

I actually finished the sleeves on Tuesday (as predicted), but yesterday was the first day I was home during the day, so I took them out and posed them on the bench in the courtyard. I think the neighbors think I’m crazy. Since Tuesday, I’ve done the hem facing and first 13 rows of the body, plus the pocket on the front (which has a very odd construction – not that I’ve done a pocket before to know “normal” construction – but it seems odd to me). I’d like to get to the point where I join the pocket back to the body by the end of the weekend. We’ll see how that goes.

    Love the comment about the Sweater a Month KAL being a support group for the insane (LOL) – couldn’t describe it better myself! Thanks for stopping by my blog!
