For a good part of last week the weather was freakishly warm, so much so that I couldn’t bear to pick up my knitting. But a cold front came through a couple of days ago so I was able to finally finish the back of my Almost-Hawthorn pullover.
In addition to the cable mods I did (discussed in earlier blog entries), I decided not to do the ribbing at the top of the sweater. And I am making the shoulders wider because I’m not too fond of boat-necks. And I put the shoulder stitches on holders so I can attach back to front with a three-needle bind-off.
Despite the weather sucking away my knitting mojo, I did manage to finish the King of All Remote Controls’ plain vanilla sportweight socks:
These socks are knit from my free toe-up gusset heel socks, knit from Opal 6-ply Best of Rainforest in the “Demian” colorway, on a 2.75mm needle.
Now I have a stealth commuter project to work on, but I have also started the front of the Almost Hawthorn pullover.
