Work, Work, Work

Today is my last official day of summer vacation ( I don’t count the weekend) and I decided to sit in my pajamas, watch old episodes of Project Runway, and knit. It was wonderful. I know that on Monday there is going to be a lot going on so I needed to get my rest in while I could.

In June, I started the Vita de Vie sweater from Pom Pom Magazine’s Issue 24. This is a really interesting sweater pattern. It is worked by starting at the sleeve cuff and knitting in toward the middle. I have never done this before and was really intrigued by the process. So far I have the right side completed and 2/3 of the left sleeve.

I also am working on Roanoke which is a short sleeve top with a really pretty neckline. The lace detail is worked using a mock cable pattern. This top is taking a really long time as I keep messing up the neckline. It took me about 4 tries to finally get it looking right. Now I am having problems with the sleeves. The edge where I picked up the stitches is looking way to loose and sloppy. I am going to try and wet block it to see if anything changes. Otherwise, I am going to have to frog it.

What are you working on right now? 

Until Next Time,
