|I finally finished knitting the last sleeve on this simple neck-down pullover sweater. I've learned something about myself as a knitter. Whenever I get close to finishing a project, I'm not sure what happens to me, but I almost always put the project aside and cast-on another. I don't really mind weaving in the ends so I'm not really sure what happens as I near the completion of a project. I'm going to have to figure out why I do this. Anyway, I used pattern #9730 from Knitting Pure and Simple for this sweater and it was a breeze. I'm already half-way done with another one for little T. I ordered some yarn to knit one for Sammy as well. I like this simple unisex sweater pattern and I'm sure that I'll knit this one again and again (even if it gets a little boring at times). I used Berroco Vintage in Black Cherry for this one. I really enjoy knitting with Vintage worsted as it's a good economical soft yarn for children's garments and the colors are a little more sophisticated to create interesting children's items. This sweater used two skeins making it about $13 for the yarn. I'm almost done with my Chloe sweater as well, but as I just stated, I have a problem finishing a project completely before starting another. I'm must be so undisciplined!|
As for reading, I'm still reading most of what I was reading last week, but I did manage to read this as well.
