“Are we there yet?”

15 Jan

I keep asking myself “Are we there yet?” (In my best whiny kid voice). Turns out, yes we’re almost there. I finished the sweater last night with a string of wool to spare. Now I have to pick up stitches and add the collar and arm cuffs and waist ribbing. The last time I had to pick up stitches, for this exact pattern, for some reason there just wasn’t enough for me to pick up (yes, yes, I followed the pattern). This time I did the sweater, I noticed the one arm looked a little more narrow then the other one. I added a few more rows that weren’t called for (hence me worrying about not having enough wool). Now with those extra rows, I am hoping there will be more stitches for me to pick up, going down the front.

Remember I went to get more Shepherds wool in navy the other day? Well since I ran out of gray wool, I will be dong the collar and all pieces listed above, in navy. Hoping to add two pewter buttons to the front to bring the gray and navy together a bit more.

Here is the pattern I am working on

 

I got some response to our knitting club email that went out, and it seems as if there is some great response. I was pleasantly surprised that friends of mine actually wanted to learn how to knit. I am really looking forward tomorrow night. I just have to find wool, needles and a pattern so I can help our members get started knitting. Have any easy beginner patterns that you think would work?
