Yarn Report – Week 34, 2014

Hey . . I used something!  Six skeins in my On the Grass sweater. There was some yarn that arrived and before you judge me, please listen to my reasoning. It was a Wollmeise update but . . don’t judge . . there was more Wollmeise this week. I looked at it and closed the web page. That’s good, right? So, last week, I ordered some and it came this week. Isn’t this blue gorgeous? Two skeins of that plus one skein of white in Pure and Twin because I needed white and couldn’t remember if I needed Pure or Twin so I got both. That means 6 skeins used and 4 skeins added for a net of 2 used. That’s great!

On the Needles

On the Grass is finished! I can hardly wait til it gets cold so I can wear it. Last night I was looking at the weather forecast in MO and wondering if . . when I go next time . . can I take a sweater with me!

I’m already back to working on this test knit for Laura Aylor.

It has to be finished by September 3 and I thin I won’t have any problem with that. Lithotripsy on the left side is scheduled for next week and that will keep me out of the garden and in the recliner for a few days.

Then I want to get crackin’ on Addie’s Carabe so I can hopefully have it finished by the time I’m able to go to MO.

On the Grass Almost Finished

Just finished the second sleeve. You probably think I say this about every sweater I make but I LOVE this one!

All I have left to do is add a little ribbing to finish off the neck. I’ve already woven in the ends! It’s kinda boxy but not terribly big or loose. It’s the kind of pullover I can wear over anything . . add a pretty scarf and be dressed up or add a chunky necklace and be dressed down.  I love that the sleeves are a bit long!  I made mine 1″ shorter than the pattern suggested and almost made them 2″ shorter but decided, since we don’t have a lot of cold weather where you break out the gloves, I can just pull these cuffs down to the middle of my hand or I can turn back the cuff if I want the sleeve to be a bit shorter.

I love the way the yarn just barely did a bit of pooling but it isn’t dramatic. I was using three skeins til I got down to the bottom ribbing.
