Hello All

Flip floppin around I missed a day again, sorry.

Whats new? Not a whole lot of anything. Off to the knit shop last night. Off to the knit ship tonight. Camper later in the weekend (Sunday, Monday).

Balled "Vintage" main sock yarn yesterday. Still in love with the leaves, but I am interested in casting on for the socks themselves. I think that I am going to do them one at a time instead of 2/once -- I am trying to enjoy this endeavor and not make it just a means to an end.

Lissa's socks are continuing - I am getting tired of working on them so I am making an effort to stick to it and Finnish (about 2 inches left before toes).

BSJ is sitting in the knitting bag.

Shawl is waiting for ball 3 of yarn.

I'm getting itchy to cast on something else.... I'm thinking of trying this sweater. I like the part of "fitting a grown ass woman". Like the green that she knitted it in, but I'm thinking maybe a bright blue (go figure).

Haven't tried a sweater before.... adult sized that is. But maybe this is the one to give it a whirl?

Later gaters

I think that's a good pattern for a first adult sweater. It looks pretty and interesting, but the shaping doesn't seem too difficult. I think that's the most frustrating thing about knitting adult sweaters - getting the shaping right.

Good luck on your sweater!

I agree with Rachel, the shaping is frustrating. By the looks of that sweater it seems like a good first project. Plus it would be interesting enough to keep you wanting to come back to knit it. I wish you luck to :)
