My current work in progress:

The Throwback by Andrea Mowry, knit from Blue Sky Fibers Woolstok Worsted and Spincycle Yarns Dream State, using 4.5mm and 5mm needles.

Jacket Progress

First of all, the winner of my review copy of A Dozen Beanies for Baby: Quick Knits for the Little Ones is Kathie, who has been emailed. Thanks to everyone who entered the giveaway. I have another great book to review, so come back on Wednesday for that.

I’ve made some nice progress on my jacket. Here is a very hastily shot photo of the back. Hastily shot because of the little someone whose blurry image can be seen at the top of the photo.

I would rather he did not re-knit this to his specifications so he was removed very shortly after the photo was taken.

And here is the left side front, close to completion:

It is not fully half the width of the back because there will be fairly deep ribbed front bands. I am planning on putting a separating zipper in the front rather than using buttons and buttonholes.

Now I need to return to this little guy:

    Gorgeous knitting. Love the color. You just have to teach Loki to knit.

  5. Lol! …”rather he not knit it to his specifications.” My dog is the same way. I don’t know why they find a knitted project so interesting.

  6. That is going to be one gorgeous sweater! Love the cables 🙂
    If I may ask.. when you get to the zipper part, would you mind sharing any and all secrets? I want to put a zipper in to a vest I am knitting and have never ventured into knits+zips. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

    Good Looking Jacket so far. Love the yarn & the various stitch patterns. Looks like Loki has a “Do Not Disturb” sign hanging on his neck. So, give him an ear rub from me when he is up to it. M
