(Apparently I'm writing all of my blog headlines this week as though they are campy movie titles...)
I have spent a lot of time working on two sweaters that haven't been mentioned in quite a while on this blog - the first is the Fieldwork Cardigan, which I seamed late last week and began the arduous task of knitting the edging over the weekend. On the plus side, all of the many ends are woven in from alternating skeins as I knit, so I'll just have a few ends to contend with when it's all said and done. Here's a shot before I started the edgings - it's looking so sweater-like!
PomPom Quarterly, you can now preview all of the patterns from the fall issue on Ravelry. Yet again, there are some really gorgeous designs; I don't know how they do it, but this is fast becoming my #1 favorite knitting magazine. It may be pricey to order the print copy, but it's totally worth it (click here to read my review of Issue 5).
I can't really allow myself to start any new sweaters until I finish what's on my needles, right? To that end, the second sweater I've been working this week has been hibernating since February of this year. I think we can all agree that there's nothing sadder than a sweater that can't be finished because you ran out of yarn. Naturally, I had to choose a color of Anzula Squishy that is apparently hard to find - but of course, Ravelry often comes to the rescue, and the skein I needed to finish the job was in my hot little hands within just a few days courtesy of my sweater savior, kitfox!
The moral of the story? Always buy a safety skein! ALWAYS!
