Making progress on my No-Rhinebeck Sweater

I’ve finished the colorwork yoke. I’ve gotten to the sleeve/body split. Now it is just knitting, knitting, knitting!

I kinda wonder and worry if I have enough handspun. So I’m thinking about alternatives in that case. I know I want to have more colorwork at the hem and the cuffs. And so maybe that is where I add in other yarns.

But for now…just relax and knit!!

WIP Wednesday–no rhinebeck sweater edition

Making progress on the yoke of this Iounne sweater. It’s a free pattern from Knitty. Is it simple? Oh so SIMPLE! But it is my first time knitting a steeked colorwork yoke sweater. So simple is OK. And this is all handspun yarn. The gold is from my own lamb fleeces and the color is hand dyed BFL roving that I dyed specifically for myself.

Some of the hand dyed parts are very similar to the background color. But I kind of like how the colorwork comes and goes.

WIP Wednesday

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted a WIP Wednesday. I am closing in on finishing 2 projects. I am excited about that for sure. I need to invoke my 10 minute knitting rule…especially on this sweater. It hurts my hands at this point to knit the sleeves. But I’m so close. I have to finish it.

And the Conflagration scarf is within 1 or 2 more repeats and I can bind off.

What’s next? A new shawl. I can see it in my head. But I have to get it on paper, pick the yarn and cast on.

What’s on your needles? Reply to this blog and let me know…or better yet, send a photo!
