I am still working through the warp from before Christmas, and I have this lovely skein of yarn I spun from ITW. It is 75/25 BFL and Tussah Silk from their December 2014 Luxe Club, colorway ‘Flounce’.
I started weaving late yesterday and I hope to finish the remaining yarn today.
And finish the laundry.
I find pairing the fun with the mundane works well, don’t you?
Last week Monday saw the kick off (or cast on) to the #bangoutasweater knit along with Kay and Anne and Friday afternoon saw me bind off a complete sweater.
Yes, that is right, in 35 hours a sweater was born.
The knitting continues, and I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. I have gotten to the color work portion of my Lopapeysa. That means that bind off will happen today! Thus far I have a grand total of twenty-seven and a half hours for #bangoutasweater and I am estimating that I have maybe another 5 hours more before that epic bind off happens.
I was shocked and insanely proud to see my sweater on MDK yesterday. A huge thanks to Kay for that supreme honor.
Yesterday, on my journey to Bang Out a Sweater I arrived at Sleeve Island. The seas were rough at the start as I tried to determine what increases worked best with the yarn.
Fortunately, Ysolda came to my rescue with this awesome edition of Technique Thursday.
Smooth sailing continues with practically invisible lifted increases.
Today begins the craziness that is #BANGoutatsweaterKAL and I thought I would share with you the method to my madness to Cardiganize this pullover, in case you want to join me.
