I’m knitting the sleeve decreases on the Tomtem baby sweater (bathtime knitting). By the way, this is a decent view of how the stripes will and won’t line up.
This is how I’m keeping track, so the second sleeve will come out the same. I hope.
Kalev’s mittens (Nancy Bush, Folk Knitting in Estonia), into the second repeat (the second half of the second repeat!). This is now a carry-around project. I tried two-handed knitting, especially awkward through the corrugated ribbing. I switched to carrying both colors in one hand. I’m trying to keep an eye on the tension as I relax into the stranded knitting. The pattern has a good rhythm. I don’t recommend a project on DPNs for first attempts at stranded knitting – too many things happening at once, even though I’m very comfortable with DPNs.
I have big ideas. I think of them while I’m knitting little things, like socks and mittens and baby sweaters. I’d probably think grand ideas while working on big things too. I just don’t seem to have any at the moment.
What do you think this is for? Zephyr Silk/Wool (50/50), laceweight, one pound cone, about 6300 yards, color vanilla. A hint: I’ll need more.
Ooh, I like the backlit grape leaf!
