Slow Progress

Shucks! I'm still on the sleeves! I had to rip one out and start over to fix some pooling and a sizing problem. Now I'm alternating balls two balls of yarn and making great progress. I think it'll take two more weeks before I'm done. Maybe a red St. Patrick's Day sweater!

(Almost) Valentine's Day Sweater

The ribbing is done! On the bottom I used size US 7 needles (200 stitches). The ribbing on the to I used size US 5 needles, took the recommended number of stitches and added a short row in the back. It fits perfectly now!

But the downside is that the Valentine’s Sweater needs a little more time. I needed to get ready for other things, and just did not have the time for my beloved almost Valentine’s Sweater. Next week I hope!

Valentine's Day Sweater

VHi Everybody!
I had this wonderful Lorna's Laces Gree Line left over and it just called out to me Valentin's Day
Sweater. But I also wanted to make this into a class, were people who have always wanted to
make a sweater, really can do a very chick sweater.
This sweater is from Knitting Pure and Simple , and you will learn about how to fit a sweater,
put short rows where the are needed and to feel really on top of things.

More knitting tomorrow...

Class by the way is on March 6, 13, and 20th.
