Lookie what I saw on my windshield this morning!

First Autumn Leaf

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.

A Post of Many Sweaters

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’s Fishermen’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.

As you can see, he finds photoshoots very interesting.
Ryuu-ko. Less like fashion photography, more like wilderness photography.
