So awhile ago, I bought an Imogen kit, not really because I intended to knit Imogen, but just because I liked the colours. And hey, with Fleece Artist, one has to snap up the colour you like when you come across it!
Then I saw Cheryl’s Imogen in person at Rhinebeck, and thought – hey, that looks really awesome! I wound a skein and contemplated.
A week later, this is what I have:
Technically, this photo is out of date even though I took it today – I finished that front at Drunken Knitters tonight, so I’m that much closer.
The pattern as some of you may have guessed, is not Imogen but the Drops jacket that everyone’s been making! I’ve been meaning to make it for ages, and in the meanwhile they’ve been popping up all over knitblogland.
I’m using the aran instructions and it’s going swimmingly – perfect somewhat-mindless, knit-while-talking project and it’s knitting up really fast. The fabric’s a little loose, but I’m sort of counting on it being a little on the big side, and fulling the fabric slightly to get a denser feel. I’m also going for the long sleeves, since I’ll be wearing it over a long-sleeved shirt.
Soon: book reviews, handspun, and maybe a finished sweater. Maybe.
