About that sweater…

on July 6, 2018
My first sweater! It's a Nanook.

My first sweater! It’s a Nanook.

I’m nearing the end! I need to add the bottom ribbing and then I’m done. It looks more cropped in the photo above, but that’s because it’s bunched up on my needles and I didn’t want to get it too straight lest some of the stitches escape from the needles. The yarn also looks really nubby–it’s not. I think it’s a combination of the lighting and the dirty mirror. (Also, I’m told once I block it any little bumps or uneven bits will smooth out.)

I did lighten the photo because the yarn itself is very rich, forest green and looked like a big blob in my original picture.

It look me forever, yes, but I’ve learned a few great new skills:

  • Knitting in the round
  • Spit-splicing
  • Working armholes (that is, joining the finished arm to the unfinished body and then knitting down)
  • More advanced (to me) pattern reading
  • How to knit an actual sweater! 😀 😀 😀

    Yahoo! I already have a couple sweaters picked out to work on when this is done… 🙂
