Yarn Along

It's Wednesday and you know what that means?  It's time for Yarn Along  where I show you what I'm knitting and none of what I am reading.  That's just where I'm at these days and I'm not apologizing for it.  One day there will be time for both....

With the Superbowl I had some great knitting time.  I finished my Crosswords Shawl (which shall have a post of it's own) and I have since moved on to some sweater knitting to help along with my 2013 Goals.  I cast on for the sleeve last night.


Kinda boring.  I know.  I'm hoping I will have enough yarn for the sleeves.


I'm making up the pattern as I go along.  It is based on Klaralund which is a Noro pattern.  I couldn't find the pattern and it didn't really matter because I would have to totally improvise anyway because it doesn't have my size.  I have back up yarn in case this doesn't work out.  I am really enjoying the process of designing my own.  I just have to remember to keep writing it down so I remember what to do on the second sleeve.


As I'm sitting here writing this I am getting the feeling that I should have used the original yarn I liked.  I have a feeling you may see something totally different next week.....

I always liked that Klaralund sweater - I bet yours will be even better!

agree with Sandy; and even if you do revert to other yarn it will be part of the learning curve for designing
