I took my Weekender along with me on holiday travels. It got a fair bit of activity on it before the Arya Shawl took over my brain. I think now I have roughly three to four inches of body knit so far. That is decent progress considering last we spoke about this one I had only just connected the ribbing in the round.
Being as I’m working with Malabrigo, I am alternating skeins using a helical method. It can get kind of tangled and I have to stop every inch or so and untwist my working yarns. But I’m pretty sure that says more about my knitting skills rather than the method. With small humans in my house I have to pick up and put down my projects A LOT.
Everyone once in awhile I flip my project over to look at the “right” side. Thank goodness Andrea Mowry designed this to be worked inside out. This knitter could not purl that many stitches in the round! But I do find myself admiring the slip stitch detail on the front and back.
I do admit that I’m a little concerned that A) this Kansas winter won’t stay cold enough for long enough for me to need a worsted weight sweater and B) I won’t actually finish this till spring at this rate…oh well!
I love that color! It’s going to be so beautiful.
That happened to me with a worsted cabled sweater I knit. I think I finished in February and there were signs that it would be an early spring and I was like nooooo but then I think we got snow that March so it all worked out lol
Too bad you won’t have for the storm coming this weekend!
I find my malabrigo cardigan isn’t super warm, so I suspect you’ll get a fair amount of use of it.
its looking good, I need to give another go at knitting for hubby
That looks lovely! I’ve never had the patience to alternate skeins. I just let it be stripey.
