I’ve been so busy with so many things that blogging has taken a back seat.
But that doesn’t mean I’ve given up knitting. Actually I’m on the verge of starting yet another project, a gansey.
This Nihon Vogue class definitely breaking me of my serial knitting habit. So far four sweater in progress with three nearly complete. While our fall trip to Japan set me back, I’ve also been making time for other things in my life. It’s so easy for me to get tunnel vision when working on a project that I tend to let neglect other things … but not this year.
The Aran is nearly complete … just need to add the ribbing and start sewing it together. I’ll post a photo of it next week.
I’m also dropping the idea of using an openwork stitch pattern for the dolman. Others in the class that did ened up having a difficult time with the short rows on the top of the sleeves. That’s one good thing about being behind, I get to see how others struggled with theire projects and make changes accordingly.
the gansey looks great, and I can’t wait to see the aran pics!
I’m still hoping to hear about the non-centered cable on the sleeve-top. . . I expect it has to do with how the cable should lie atop the body’s shoulder?
