I’m so glad Fall is finally here, hopefully I’ll get back into my routine now that summer is finally over and done. I plan to actually knit stuff, and not just plan either, I mean actually produce a garment or at least an accessory or two.
Currently, I’m working on a Alice Starmore fisherman’s sweater for my son, or possibly my (younger) daughter, depending on how long it takes because I am a slow knitter even when I’m not using 3 mm needles like this pattern calls for.
I finished the Ryuu-ko sweater for 海丰 last week. I briefly looked over the pattern before starting. Too briefly. It’s missing some details like sleeve length. This should serve as a lesson to carefully read a pattern before starting it. Had I done so, I would have made it top-down, with short-row shaping. He wore it and is happy with it, but I’m not so I cast-on for Fife, from Alice Starmore’sFishermen’s Sweaters. My craving for perfectly designed sweaters was not over – I also started St. Enda, from Aran Knitting for my father-in-law. I’m knitting St. Enda in a black yarn, which photographs very badly (at least by me) so no pics for now.
Ryuu-ko. Less like fashion photography, more like wilderness photography.
