Change

Can you feel the change in the air?  The air is crisper, the leaves are turning and sweater weather is almost upon us!

Ah September, the time for routine!  As much as I love the relaxed pace of summer, I embrace the structure of back-to-school with still some sunshiny playtime left. September also means that I can get back to my poor, neglected knitting basket!

I seem to enjoy knitting along with others and so when Carol Feller announced her Mystery Knit-along I signed up eager to get a sweater finished over the summer.  I did pretty good until Clue# 1 and that’s where my knitting mojo got wooshed away with the summer breeze 😉  The knit-along was done a while ago but I’m inching along on my sweater and almost done with the hip increases.

This sweater has some very interesting techniques, one of them being short rows.

I have a sinking feeling that I might run out of yarn.  Garter stitch is a yarn gobbler!  I might have to make this a short sleeve sweater like Kelly’s… isn’t her Ravi just lovely??  Talk soon 🙂

    It’s looking beautiful! Its a great layering piece so even if you do have to go with short sleeves you’ll still get a lot of wear out of it.

  2. it is looking good. I signed up for the kal but sadly haven’t started yet. Too much to knit, too little time!

    I had the best intentions of joining this KAL, too, and bought the pattern and the yarn … but then never cast on. The yarn has been knit into something else but I suspect that a Ravi will be in my future at some point! Yours is looking lovely!
