New Sweater

In addition to all the projects on my needles right now ( you know, the ones that I’m ignoring) I started a new sweater. I feel like I’m totally channeling Adrienne on this one.

This is as a seamless, in the round, designing as I go type of deal. I’m knitting it in Rowan Felted Tweed, MC in Treacle, CC in Ginger. It will eventually be drop shouldered, with a crew neck. However, I’ve already encountered a snag in the width (i.e, too big) and since I’ve already knit 13″, there’s no way I’m ripping it and starting over. Can you see where this going? Steeking. I figure, since I’ve only knit 2.5 skeins, if I seriously mess it up, it’s a lesson well learned, and my only loss will be time. I’ve steeked before, so I’m confident it’ll be good.

Wish me luck!!

    I can’t believe you have a color called Great Googlie Mooglie, we say that all the time (Maggie & the ferocious beast) I was so bummed that I missed out on it last time it was posted.
