Lost in a sea of yarn and needles. Lusting after handmade socks and all things lacy


I think I can, I think I can

The pattern for the Cozy Cable Big Kids Sweater has been posted atMarguerite . I didn't finish on time, but I can smell the finish line. I am half way to the end of the second sleeve. This has been some zippy knitting for me. I have really enjoyed the pattern and I plan to do another one for the kids, with the bulky Brown Sheep yarn. I will probably switch to 2x2 ribbing. Ribbing makes my teeth hurt and 1x1 ribbing is an act of love for me. Maybe try a different cable pattern. I know Margarite wanted to keep the pattern simple. I swear it took longer to knit the sleeves then the body of the sweater. What is that? Sleeves, You are now entering a different time space continuum Sleeve time is definitely different then normal knitting time.

And a belated gift from Santa ;)I ordered them in November, but she was over run with orders after Harlot posted about the sock kits. I told her no rush. I have no idea when I will get around to these. They are for my daughter. She loves dolphins and Celtic stuff. She also love pirates and still hasn't gotten her pirate hat. So you see how these things go :-)You can see the patterns much for clearly at her site.

I know what you mean about sleeves. Soon I'll have two sweaters (not Cozy in Cables) on the sleeves and I'm already wondering how I could have let that happen.

Have fun with your variations on Cozy in Cables. Next time I knit one (it might be awhile) I plan on doing some creative alterations, also.

Wonderful progress on your sweater - and so true about sleeves, a book I have, recommended knitting them first (work out any pattern or gauge issues on a smaller piece). Next time I have the "gettoit" to make a whole sweater, I will try that. Love your Tsarina kits - I am patiently waiting on Kitri, and may break down and get Imbas too :).

Yes...sleevery...I am working on sleeve two of a sweater. I tend to knit them first, or at least early. I'll do a sleeve (to test gauge etc.) then the back, then another sleeve. The rest of it seems to fly.

Those sock kits look like fun!

Sleevery-hahaha. The sweater looks wonderful, Suzann.

I like the sock kits a LOT. I noticed there is a new sock competition at Yarn Monkey (UK)-interested?

Your sweater looks great and I"m anxious to see the finished socks! Libby
