Well, it took me more than a weekend (even a 3 day weekend) but I finally finished my Weekend Pullover:
I did get everything done but the sleeves last weekend which is why I didn’t post about it, I wanted to see how much I could actually get done and there just wasn’t a lot of knitting time at home this past week. The yarn is what I got last weekend – Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Superchunky. The pattern is Knitting Pure and Simple‘s Weekend Pullover. If you scroll down it’s in the middle. It’s knit on size 17 needles. The cicular the body’s done on isn’t too bad but the dpn’s are a bit of a pain to get used to.
Looking at the picture I should clarify, I do need to weave in the ends. I need a little help on that because I tried to weave two in and because the stitches are so big and the yarn so lofty I feel you can see where it is. I’m waiting for Mom the Knitting Guru’s help (not like I need a sweater in this weather yet).
That would make it my first finished sweater. Well, the first finished sweater that will fit a person. I also made this last weekend:
I’ve also been knitting on Dad’s sock:
I got lots of help. Bartholamew supervised the finished sweater photo shoot:
Pepper supervised all the knitting:
Well, most of the knitting. Yesterday I went to the Big Lick Blues Festival with some friends of mine. Yes, I took my knitting. However, I didn’t take anything that couldn’t stand to get dirty since it was outdoors. So I took some dishrag cotton:
Sometimes, it’s nice just making plain ol’ garter stitch squares.
