Transverse progress (7)

I knit a few rounds on my sweater this week. It's not much but every little bit helps. I'm creeping closer to the point where I split for the sleeves. In fact I think I only have 2 more increase rounds left, so I'm just about at the maximum stitch count. It will be nice... Continue Reading →

Transverse progress (6)

I made some progress on this sweater over the holidays, even if I was spending most of my time on other projects. This one is mostly tv knitting for now. I'm at the point where I only have to worry about increases every few rows so I can mostly just mindlessly knit. It is relaxing... Continue Reading →

Transverse progress (5)

I definitely lied in my last post, as I am still much more than 10 rows away from splitting for the sleeves. I am one round away from the main yoke portion of the pattern, but there's a transition section that I hadn't read through properly last time that will add quite a few more... Continue Reading →

Transverse progress (4)

I'm now up to color number 5 in this advent minis sweater. On the one hand, it is going faster than I expected it to. On the other hand, it is still a fingering weight sweater and is going to take forever to finish. Luckily all the color changes keep it interesting. Right now I'm... Continue Reading →

Transverse progress (3)

Although it is a little hard to tell, I have made it to the 4th mini skein in my sweater. The third and fourth colors are very similar, except the third has orange speckles and the fourth has green speckles. At first I wasn't sure how I felt about the fact that not all of... Continue Reading →

Transverse progress (2)

I finished a few more rows of my sweater and have moved into the third mini-skein from my advent. I'm trying to convert my mindset over to the fact that this project will be a marathon and not a sprint. As it stands I am not even halfway through the raglan increases before I split...

Transverse progress

This is where most of my knitting time has been spent lately. I started on the second mini skein from my advent and I'm about halfway done with it already. The short rows are finished and I just have about 50 rows of raglan increases to knit before I split for the sleeves. That should... Continue Reading →

Transverse started

I knew I wanted to make a sweater with my Dark Crystal Halloween advent from Dragon Hoard Yarn, and this weekend I finally cast it on. I decided to try making the Transverse sweater because it is basically a simple top-down raglan but it has a few details that make it look more finished. That... Continue Reading →

Flax Baby Sweater finished!

It is done already! This little sweater took less than a week from start to finish. I made the 6-12 month size and it used just barely more than one skein of yarn. It's a little bigger than I expected but I would rather make something that the baby can grow into instead of something... Continue Reading →

Flax Baby Sweater started

I had been meaning to start on this project for a while and I finally decided to go for it on Friday afternoon. As you can see I made a lot of progress on it over the weekend too. This is a gift for a friend who is expecting soon. I've never really knit any... Continue Reading →

Fluff Nugget Cardigan finished!

It is finally done! The button band went very quickly, and I was all excited to be nearly done. Then I realized how much finishing was left to do. Luckily I had woven in most of my ends as I went along, but I stopped and checked to make sure I have everything woven in... Continue Reading →

Fluff Nugget progress (15)

As promised, I actually picked up the stitches for the button band right away. It doesn't look like much at the moment since I only managed 2 rows after that. On the one hand, this feels like a bit of a slog since I'm now working over even more stitches than the body of the... Continue Reading →
