Progress Report

Posted on: October 13, 2007

Hello,
A bit of progress to report. I’ve been a busy bee!

First up, progress on the Premiere Pullover:

Not a lot, as you can see. I’m almost finished the armhole shaping, about 2 more repeats of the cable pattern before the shoulder shaping. It’s a slow knit, this one! I’m a bit worried about it actually, it looks a bit small to me. I’m knitting it in the 34″ bust size (which I am far from lol) so maybe it’s just because I’m not used to garments looking that small! I hope I haven’t knit it too tightly.

Next up, Socks for Dad:

The first one is finished! Doesn’t it look good? I love this Lana Grossa self striping yarn. My first knit on dpns. I must admit that I’ve started the second one on my trusty circular again using the magic loop. I’m just more comfortable with it. I found the toe decreases very difficult on the dpns. Needles everywhere!
But, I’m glad I know how to do it now, as I’ll be casting on for my Monkey socks with the Araucania yarn I recently bought for my airplane knitting.

Lastly, Mam’s Lacy Stole:

I’m sorry to report that I didn’t get it finished in time for her birthday last Wednesday. I substituted with a bunch of flowers instead, I just didn’t have the time. I knit on this almost constantly at home but to no avail. I have about 25 or 26″ done which I suppose is not bad going! I have to get to 72″. I think I’ll give it to her for Christmas instead. I know she’ll love it!

I hope to get another post in before my holidays (yarn travels) begin on Thursday, but if not, watch out LYS in the Orlando area, I’m coming!!!

Love the sock. That self-striping looks cool. Sorry you couldn’t finish that scarf for your mom’s birthday, but I’m sure she’ll love it for Christmas!
