So. It’s February, arguably the most dreary month of the year, at least around these slush-covered parts. Lots of people are looking forward to the end of winter and coats, and to the prospect of a green world again.
Now, I love spring as much as the next person (gardening!), but I’m just not quite done with winter yet! I still have sweaters to knit!
Newly cast on – Lush and Lacy from SweaterBabe.
Mmmm. I’m using the called-for Classic Elite Lush, funny enough – I had a bag in the stash. My gauge is a little smaller than the pattern calls for, but I can see this yarn stretching out quite a bit once it hits water or gets worn. So I’m pushing ahead. It’s going quickly, although I do wish the lace panel was charted (yeah, yeah, I’ll just do it myself). I’m almost to the armholes of the back now, but I’m putting it on hold for a bit (just two days after starting it!). With its lace and shorter sleeves, it can be a spring sweater.
I still have Silver Belle (Choco-belle!) left to knit, and this is a seriously winter sweater. So it’s back to cables city! I just did a major decrease row on the peplum, and have just a couple inches left to do on it. Then it’s onto the sleeves/fronts, which should go relatively faster.
Of course, I also have a lot of rather important deadline knitting to do. Can I finish this sweater before winter’s end? Well, it can always be a spring jacket…
