Knitting against the clock

v-neck: sleeves

Only five days left before our next session.

On the knitting front I have about 2/3 of the other sleeve piece to finish. These twisted stitches are tough on the old fingers.

As far as the seam stitch goes I decide to have one knit stitch on each side. Hopefully this will be ok with sensei.

Yet to do:
– grids on v-neck pattern pieces
– block top-down raglan
– undo side seams of vest to leave ribbing seam undone


Look what finally arrived in the mail this weekend. Vintage Knitting in TraditionToshiyuki Shimada’s latest book. It’s packed with so many enticing garments one hardly knows where to start. I was planning to  do a review but a fellow ravelry knitter already posted this excellent review on her blog.

One word of caution though. I found out yesterday, via this ravelry post that the first edition is being recalled by the publisher and a second edition is being printed now. In case you got the first edition, here’s the errata. Download the pdf files to find corrected charts.

Also via the same raverly post someone mentioned that The Needle Arts Book Shop is now carrying Japanese books.

Well, I’ve got to get back to that homework now.

  1. Nice job on your article in Spin Off. Will you be at Madrona this year? I am taking all Jean Wong classes and I am really looking forward to it.
