I think I'm done with my "show and tell" about my latest knitting treasures. Life isn't back to normal yet , so knitting time is kind scarce nowadays. Though, there is some progress on Sweet Pea. It's going in a much faster pace than I originally had predicted. It could be that I am using larger needles sizes than I normally knit with it. See, I am done with the back of the sweater as you can see here:
I could have skipped the first photo but I had a small accident while takking the picutre. Silly me, thought that I could take a quick shot before the small portion of water would spill out. So there is a need to post the picture to compensate the efort of cleaning up the floor. Well, you get to see the back. Though, it's the same design as the front. :D
And speaking of the front, it's also done. To incentivate my knitting flow, I finished mending the shoulders and the V collar before starting the sleeves. It feels great to think that I only need to attach the sleeves when I am done knitting them at the end. I think I'll follow this sequence in the future as I dislike so much the mending part. Even though the total work is the same , mending a bit a time can minimize the boredom of the task.
There is a wrinkled look on the cabled stitches ( the Xs) that I am wondering if I should block it now before I attach the sleeves. By the way, did you notice the curved shape? The design is a straight line but it curves because it's all in plain stitches on the side. I would perfer it this way but I was too lazy to calculate the decreases and increases.
I am having a hard time to distract me away from the newest Fall Keitodama even though it's still hot around here and I am sweating as I am typing now. :D There are many designs in black and I have only the bamboo yarn to follow the trend. And it doesn't seen to fit any of the designs I plan to knit. I don't want to think about the possibility that I need to shop for more yarn. Though, it seems that I would have the perfect excuse for purshasing new yarn.
Hope you all have a relaxing weekend! See you all next week!
