My current work in progress:

1. Strandwanderer, designed by Lea Viktoria, knit from Wollmeise Merino "Pure" in the "Zenzi" colorway on a 3.25 mm (U.S. size 3) needle.
2. Myriad stealth projects.

All Ingeborg All the Time

Not going to work today — I took today and tomorrow off. Woo-hoo!

I did some Ingeborging over the weekend. I finished the first sleeve.

I measured the top of the sleeve, so I could mark the depth of the armholes on the body. I sewed all the steeks.

Here’s a close-up of the front neck steek.

And here it is cut open.

I picked up the stitches and started knitting the neckband.

I will complete the front bands before I start the second sleeve, I think. There’s a lace edging that is knit separately and sewed around the neck, cuffs, and bottom of the sweater. I may knit that and sew it in before I do the last sleeve — I’ll see how I feel when I get to it.

I do like the idea of having everything completed and when I finish the second sleeve, I can just sew it in the armhole and be done with the whole thing.

Lucy and I have a special guest coming to stay with us tonight. As you can see, Lucy is primping in preparation!

  1. I thought of you Saturday because Morgan went off to play with Izzy wherever she is now. I put some pictures of her on Pink Tea.

  2. Aw! That’s an awfully cute picture of Miss Lucy!

  3. Kitty Lucy is adorable.

    Did you buy any new yarns at Knit Happens on Saturday?

    Have good days off.

  4. Your Ingeborg is looking great! What a gorgeous piece! And Lucy, what a hoot!

  5. Hi guys. Wendy, as usual your project looks lovely. Lucy is very chic with her accessory, i can almost see her getting ready to flip her scarf ends and ask for a cat nip julep, shug. :)
    If you guys would please do me a favor, I’ve been working on a fair isle charted design, I have the link posted here http://knittinglikeasailor.blogspot.com and I am hoping some kind souls will be willing to critique it for me?
    Thanks!

  6. I dub thee “Turbo Knitter”. Wow! I still haven’t even got to ripping Ingeborg, but then I’ve been obsessed with my Charlotte. Soon enough…

  7. Wendy, I hope you are enjoying your little vacation! Do you always stay up until midnight writing, then post when you wake up? Or do you go to bed earlier on work-nights so you can be up by 5? (Nosy, aren’t I?)

    Enjoy your slumber party!

  8. That photo of Lucy made me LAUGH out loud. Priceless!

  9. Lucy is all dolled up and ready for guest. Cute!

    Ingeborg looks incredible! What an amazing process. I am in awe of Ingeborg and steeking.
