Did you have a nice New Year's? Mine was good, nothing too exciting, but good.
New Year's give everyone a fresh start, if they decide to take it, and my fresh start for this year was to learn a new technique.
This past year I knit several top down, raglan cardigans, but you know, there is something about the fit of set in sleeves that I love. Enter Jeri with an answer! A few needle gymnastics and she has created a top down, fitted, set in come raglan sleeve sweater. Actually, she has patterns for a couple of them on Ravelry, but I dove in with Ingrid.
As you can see, I am not too far into the actual knitting, but that would be page 9 of a very well written 14 page pattern!
Jeri is also half of the team that is bringing Metamorphosis KAL to life. Materials lists and measurement worksheets are up on the group, I just need to find a helper for my own measurements...anyone got a young, handsome, handy with a tape measure, male they want to loan me? No ? Then TDQ will have to do it.
I still need to stash dive for those projects...yes projects! If you thought all that was coming was a transformed lace sweater you would be wrong. Three shawls or two shawls and a scarf, along with two sweater versions could mean a lot of yarn!
Speaking of yarn, my Ingrid is being knit with gift yarn, which can mean only one thing.....when I am through with it someone get's their yarn back as a finished object!
I am off to stash dive, you never can tell what might be lurking in there!
Here's hoping your New Year is off to a good start!
