Yarn Along

Happy Wednesday!  Well, I have been knitting and knitting and feel like I don't have much to show for it.  I have been working diligently on my Sophisticate sweater (aka Rhinebeck sweater).  It certainly doesn't look like that to me.
I have 294 stitches around.  I need to get to 328.  That's a lot of stitches on the needles.  I should be able to separate for the sleeves by tonight if I'm lucky.  I think at that point I will feel a little more accomplished.

It's looking like a lump right now.  But look at that cool sweater bag I got from Lois at Knittings My Bag. How could I start a sweater without getting a special sweater bag.  With owls.
And owl stitch markers of course.

So what ya got on your needles?  Join Ginny and let us be inspired.

Good for you!

I'll be going to Rhinebeck too! Wearing a extremely silly hat like I always do. ;-)

Sometimes knitting feels like that. I've been in a finishing frenzy and that's pretty awesome - doesn't happen very often, either!

yeah... that is a lot of stitches. It's one reason I've not knit a sweater for myself yet! Looks great!

Oh that is going to be such a wonderful sweater!! It takes a while before I get to the exciting part but it's so worth it.

Fabulous sweater, not far now to reach your 328 stitches. I love how you've coordinated your bag and stitch marker. Enjoy the rest of your week. Deb x
