I’m feeling pretty lazy and sleepy today. I just want to go back to bed! But I have a pile of projects on my desk that need some attention.
Sewing in a zipper.
This sweater has buttons now! Perfect for the weather coming up this week. Pattern is at the editor’s, so I just need to take some photos to get the ball rolling on the final layout.
I’ve knit a little bit more on the sweater I showed a few posts ago – this one’s going to be a long-haul project, but it’s immensely satisfying. I love the steek stitches as well, and am thinking of doing a sweater with all-over checks!
I finished watching the Sopranos yesterday – I’ve been binge watching it during the week since August 22! Whatever shall I watch next? Maybe I’ll concentrate on finishing 11/22/63, which is awesome.
For my second sweater with Harrisville, I designed a simple pullover with an asymmetrical hem, V-neck, and long sleeves.
Official blurb: The Grantham Pullover is a flattering sweater featuring an asymmetrical hem and simple V-neck. The back is worked with slipped stitches that highlight the subtle darted waist shaping, and the long sleeves begin with an I-cord cast on that is echoed in the attached I-cord neck edging. Harrisville’s Silk & Wool is light and soft, with a fun nubbly texture.
Grantham is knit in pieces and seamed.
I wish I was in the woods at a beautiful cabin like this one right now!
Here’s my original sketch.
Originally, I was going to just have the front be slanted and the back hem straight across, but that evolved to have both the front and back be shaped. The Silk & Wool is really nice and light, perfect if you overheat a lot like me!
Here it is on my dressform.
I love slipped stitch darted shaping.
