Summit Completed

I finished Summit last week.

This is a design by Sloane Rosenthal, knit from Rowan Softyak DK, one of my current favorite yarns. The only mode I made was to knit the sleeves in stockinette stitch instead of 2×2 rib. Honesty compels me to admit that I did it by accident — I had several inches on a sleeve before I bothered to read the pattern and discovered that it was supposed to be worked completely in rib. But had I been paying attention, I probably would have knit them in stockinette anyway. I also made them a bit wider than the pattern called for. I do not like tight sleeves.

Here’s my new project:

This the start of Pitch, by Emily Greene. I am knitting it from one of my all-time favorite yarns, Elsawool Cormo. This is woolen-spun worsted.

Meanwhile, Loki is spending time in his crinkle tunnel.


I finished the front of my Summit pullover the other day.

The back is boring in comparison — it is straight stockinette.

But ever helpful, Loki attempts to make things more entertaining.

Picket Fences

I finished my Picket Fence Afghan this past week.

I’m so pleased with it — The Rowan SoftKnit Cotton was a dream to work with and working in squares made it go very quickly. I even didn’t mind the what seemed like miles of applied i-cord around the outer edge. Of course I had supervision.

So . . . on to something new:

This is Summit by Sloane Rosenthal. I’m knitting it from Rowan SoftYak DK in shade 254 Canopy.

That’s the front in progress — the back is plain stockinette. I’ll have to find something on Netflix really entertaining to watch to get me through the boredom of plain stockinette!
