The 100 days of sock knitting is going well. I have finished three pair and just started the heel on another pair. I haven’t really challenged myself with my sock knitting. Sticking with a simple recipe has helped me get more comfortable with the needles and yarns.
I swatched this week for a sweater and my gauge was spot on. I have some yarn I would like to use for a vest and will get that swatched soon. Then I will need to decide which projects to begin.
The best news is that I have a finished sweater. This is the first sweater finish this year but the yarn has been hanging about in my stash for a very long time. The pattern is Joji Locatelli’s Simple Summer Sweater. I knit the body slightly longer and the sleeves shorted. I loved knitting this sweater and I think it will be a new favorite and we have plenty of cool weather still to come. And, it looks great with my hand knit socks!
And since that is three things – I guess I will link up with Carole this week!
