In Marion Foale’s Classic Knitwear is, in my opinion, this sexy little number:
Cool sweater, huh? You knit the body and sleeves in one piece, starting at the bottom ribbing on the front (or back — they’re identical). Cast on additional stitches to make the sleeves. Pick up stitches at the bottom of the sleeves and knit ribbing down, then pick up stitches around the deep v-neck and knit ribbing there as well.
I made this ages ago — late 1980s? — out of a sportweight single-ply wool and I think it’s Brown Sheep. Do they (or did they) make a sportweight “Lamb’s Pride?” That’s what the yarn looks like.
Yow! What a day at work yesterday. I’m sure I’ll be cramming at least five days worth of work into three days this week. Insanity is rampant.
And little knitting was done last night, as it was my Annual Holiday Shopping Trip™ with my Dad. We always go out a couple of days before Thanksgiving and I help him pick out my Mom’s Christmas gifts, and then we have dinner afterwards. Always a fun outing!
Izzy is basking in the glow from all the publicity she received, being featured in Bonne Marie’s ChicKnits yesterday!
