Work in Progress Wednesday 138
I have had time to knit though, as you can see from the picture. This is the sweater that you saw barely started last week! I have about 5 more rows before finishing the waist shaping if you can believe that! I don't know why it's going so fast, but my guess is because I'm so used to working in fingering weight yarn (this is worsted) that the progress is flying which makes me want to work on it more! As mentioned last week, this is Candy Skein Yummy Worsted in Watermelon and pattern Ladies Classic Raglan Pullover by Jane Richmond. I love the way she writes patterns, as you fill in all of the info based on your size from charts. That way you don't have to remember which size in the bracket you're doing or highlight. So smart!
My only issue so far (if you can see it in the picture) is the way the sweater joins after knitting back and forth to get the back of the neck. This is my first pullover and I was very sloppy (not sure how I could have done it better, as I'm new to it) carrying the yarn. I'm rotating balls of yarn, since it's hand dyed. I hope it looks better after blocking, and if not, I think that's a GREAT place for a cute patch/felted needle pin, etc! ;) If you have any tips/tricks to make this look better, let me know in comments! After I split for the arms, I am now carrying the yarn under the arm, down the side which is working MUCH better, as you can imagine.
If interested, you can purchase it here!
That's it for me today! I hope you have a great rest of your week and I'll see you all on Friday!
