Knitting- gasp!

Working on just one more row’s Crystal Cove pullover. I had to change the gauge into something i already had, so I used Merino Stripes.
It is a little nerve racking. One, I have such wonderful self esteem that I am always surprised at how big a sweater has to be to cover my vast tracts of land. Two, this stuff is hard to rip out. It likes to be knit loosely, and so I have no confidence that the sweater might just not stretch right down to the floor. Knit tightly, the yarn resembles a brillo pad. Knit loosely, it has a soft, airy feel.

The giant log cabin blanket is beginning to approach it’s final size. Picture soon.

  1. Oh cool. I love that pattern, and I want to see how it looks in that yarn. Any chance you can come model it at Stitches? I’d dearly love a chance to see you there.
