Confessions of a Left-Hand Knitter

Exploring the Possibilities

WIP Wednesday…a day late

on March 29, 2018

Hey Everyone!!

It has been a crazy week and lots of updates. I am knitting very slowly but knitting. As mentioned in previous post I have finished a couple projects. Currently, I started the Fade to Flax sweater for my travel project for Edinburgh. It is my first fingering weight sweater, that is design to eat up the copious amount of fino in my stash. I have 6 skeins of fino (2 skeins of different colors) that I picked up during Rosie’s Yarn Cellar closing. 😦 still sad…miss you Rosie’s. Currently I am using four skeins now for this sweater; however, might add more if needed. Below are some current pictures of the Fade to Flax ( I love this pun…it is so metal. Lol )

There are a couple mistakes but that what makes it home made and unique to me. The pattern is clear and is inspiring me to think about designing as it is a basic sweater pattern. Definitely recommend for beginners to sweaters.

The second WIP which has slightly stalled only because I need to whine up balls to start the sleeves, which is the Liz Sweater. The lace motifs came together and looks great it is a highlight of the cardigan. I learned a new technique which is short row shaping. It was interesting and see why it is cool. I hope I did it correctly because I am not frogging back. The yarn is difficult. I am so happy to be rid of this yarn! I know it is going to be nice once blocked but it is a pain to work with. Also, I notice that one side short rows look great and the other side looks obvious…again I hope it blocks out. Today I plan to start the sleeves. I am going to do two at a time and use one of my new project bag for it. Excited!!!! I am trying to get out of the woes of sleeves quicker via two at a time. Wish me luck!
