Like many of you, it is hard to remember today is Wednesday and September - our hot weather came back when we thought it was gone. School is in full swing, work is busy and I have self imposed deadlines on knitting. I'm fitting in my blogging early in the morning before going to exercise. It means the pictures could use a lot of help.
My Sophia Cable Vent Jacket has not gone very far. I decided I wanted my other project done before a trip so this has been relegated to a corner. I think I am ready to start shaping the armholes. I never know when I am going to walk away from a project, and therefore don't put down good notes about where I am. Starting back up is then a pain.
My other project is a sweater I am designing. It is a top down, set in sleeve project. I took JC Briar's class on set in sleeves last spring and it was great. Combining what I learned in that and Ann Budd's new Top Down Sweater Book with the classic Barbara Walker Knitting from the Top, I am very pleased with the result. I always found Barbara Walker's book a bit inaccessible, but with the class and the new Ann Budd book, I think I understand it much better. The pictures don't do it justice. The sleeve join looks great.
My cat loves the yarn - a silk cotton mix. This did not help the photo session.
Tami's to see lots of great projects.
