Chunky Sweaters are Fun

The sweater is moving along nicely thanks to Joe watching over the baby a bit yesterday. I still hate the pattern but have figured out its quirks, so I’m keeping with it. The pattern people thought it would be fun to put instructions in three different places, and then have the row counts not be the same in the three places. So I ended up pulling out some rows because I missed a decrease row, but all is well now. I’ve got the pattern down and the yarn moves very quickly.



Clapotis is still in the bag, I’ll probably work on it Tuesday night during the SnB meeting. I’m also dying to cast on for that Lush scarf, but I haven’t come up with a pattern yet. I’ll probably browse through my new Vogue Knitting before I find just the right stitch.

And I recently remembered the brown blanket I’m making and stuffed in a drawer in order to make my Christmas gifts. Guess I’d better get it out. It’s made of Rowan Cork and has fabulous cables. I think it will look great in our front room but I’d better get moving on it before it gets hot again.

I'm loving the chunky cables!

I'm sorry we aren't going to be able to meet while I'm in Phoenix. Hopefully my next visit will be planned and can include some group knitting time. :-)

Brooke, Your sweater is looking gorgeous! That cable is great. I wish I could go to the SnB on Tuesday - I would love to see your Clapotis.

Are you making the Marilyn Sweater? If so, I am soooo anxious to see it as you are knitting it because I want to make that really bad. I'm waiting to lose more weight so I can wear it more than 2 months. It looks beautiful!
