My current work in progress:

Geiger by Norah Gaughan, knit from Wollmeise Merino DK in the “Schwefel” colorway, using 3.25mm and 3.75mm needles.

Progress You Can See

I actually have progress you can see on my Chloe sweater. The collar is done!

I elected to knit the collar before the sleeves. I did the three-needle bind-off for the shoulder seams and picked up the stitches around the neck. It’s a very deep collar and you increase two stitches at the center back of it every other row, so it was a lot of knitting. I finished it last night.

Then I picked up stitches along one side for a sleeve.

I am making my sleeves bigger than the pattern directs. As written, the sleeves are rather tight-fitting, but for me, that defeats the purpose of a big loose comfy sweater. So my sleeves will be nice and loose. I am knitting mine in stockinette stitch instead of reverse stockinette stitch as directed. I am not crazy about how reverse stockinette looks in this yarn. 

As you can see, this project is no longer very portable!

Meanwhile, Loki has perfected the art of relaxation!

  1. I just love the many positions that Loki can assume to be comfortable.

  2. Your sweater is gorgeous! I like comfy too so kniting the sleeves bigger will be better.

  3. Love the sweater!

  6. It will be beautiful, as always. How on earth can Loki sleep like that? 🙂

  7. Chloe is looking great! Terrific color, sensible mods. I sure do wish I could sleep like a cat. You know they become boneless while sleeping……
