The Post in Which I Share My First Knitted Sweater

Happy I Love Yarn Day! Grab some yarn & needles & enjoy the day. Happy Knitting!

Finished Project
C.C.'s Ruby's Bookstore Sweater ~ The weather was finally cool enough this past weekend to wear my first knitted sweater. I actually completed it back in July, but of course Texas weather would not cooperate for me to wear it. The pattern, Ruby's Bookstore Sweater, is from a novel by Rachael Herron. It took me about 1.5 months to knit (I worked on several other projects concurrently). It was knit on US 7 (4.5 mm) needles with Berroco Comfort Solids & Heathers in the Rosebud colorway.

Current Works in Progress
Amazingly Amy Jekyll & Hyde Socks ~ I'm currently working on Sarah Wilson's pattern, Jekyll & Hyde Socks. I'm knitting on US 1 (2.25 mm) needles with Vice Yarn in the Amazingly Amy colorway. They are about 75% complete.

leethal mystery shawl 2012 ~ I'm currently working on Lee Meredith's pattern, leethal mystery shawl 2012. I'm knitting on US 5 (3.75 mm) needles with Crystal Palace Yarns Panda Superwash in the Bittersweet colorway, Knit One Crochet Too Crock-O-Dye in the Candy colorway, and Lucci Yarn Sequins in the Cranberry (except it's not Cranberry, it's more like Hot Pink!!!!! But definitely Not Cranberry!!!!!) colorway. This is a 5 week mystery knit-a-long. I've completed the first 2 clues. Clue 3 will be released on Monday.

All the Shades of Truth ~ I'm currently working on Laura Aylor's pattern, All the Shades of Truth (a color-block stole). I'm knitting on US 7 (4.5 mm) needles with Kraemer Yarns Perfection in the Sprout, Fluff, Butterfly, Valentine, & Bloom colorways. It's about 70% complete.

As always, find all my completed projects plus what's currently on my needles on Ravelry:

  1. Nice work!! I stick to simpler things; scarves, prayer shawls, caps knit with a round loom. Very basic stuff.
