On the Needles – Friday 5/29/15

DSCN4349My blue sweater isn’t finished yet –only about an inch or two of the sleeve cap to go on the last sleeve.  But, since I was going out of town last weekend, I needed something else to take along to work on where I didn’t really have to pay attention.  So I cast on this sweater.  Note that this is the worst photo ever.  Hot pink my sweater is not — it is actually bright cherry red but that’s such a hard photo to photograph in my sewing room on a gloomy rainy night.  So just pretend it looks bright red.  This one is Cascade Ultra Pima Cotton.  It will be a 3/4 length sleeve button cardigan. The back is plain and there will be a bit of design up the front along the button bands.

Now the second photo — those colors are perfect!


That’s my Loopy Legend yarn – Denise’s Gannets.  The only downside of it — oh the yardage that will add to my stash knitting tally! 🙂   I have three different sweaters nearly done — two need blocking (after I finish that last sleeve cap) and the other needs the front/neck bands added.  If I ever stop starting new projects, I’ll be able to make some headway on that stash knitting tally.  In the meantime, I have to go add 3,045 yards on for my Gannets yarn. 😉

  1. The Gannets yarn is so beautiful – looking forward to seeing it on the pins.

  2. What they say about fabric also pertains to yarn. If you like it, buy two skeins. If you love it, buy more. Both go in the stash count. But if you are the inspiration for the yarn, it shouldn’t go into the stash count as it is a precious gift to be a muse:)

    • Actually I didn’t count the free hank of it I got – just the extras I ordered. Anything new I purchase gets added — hopefully this won’t be in there long. 😉
