Hello, readers :)
Well, today is one of those perfect weather days. DH is out mowing the lawn, while I play with another project.
I've said it before, that I get those days where nothing works. So it was today :)
I tried several different tatting projects to work on and nothing got going.
However, the other day I started ANOTHER project, hopefully, along with my socks, will be a Christmas present for one of my kids. BUT that means that ALL of them will want a sweater. So 4 sweaters it will be.
I've rummaged through all my stashes and came up with some Hanne Falkenberg wool that would work.
Got the gauge and I changed the pattern up some and away I went.
Now, don't get all squeamish on me.....This is an Alice Starmore pattern and done in the round.
I have used a steek that is designated by the rings.
When done, you CUT it up the middle.
With scissors, and then use the SEWING MACHINE? "GULP"
I have no idea what to do when I reach the underarms, because I have to ADD TWO MORE steeks. That should be a blast, right? Oy
We will see how it goes. But in any case, knitting in the round has it's advantages because you don't have to purl. I'm not sure which I would like better - pieces or in the round.
I'll see how far I get with it. I may call on Frivole to cut it apart for me. :)
Hope you are all having a wonderful day.
Until next time....
