A Raven and A Sweater

No, I am not starting to knit sweaters for birds. I have made excellent progress on the Raven’s Wing yarn, and I want to show you! Ta-da. My first wound-off bobbin of the single ply. Looks pretty nice, eh? I’m so excited about the way it’s turning out.

And, for the second half of our program, I give you my sweater progress. I finished one of the sleeves and started merrily in on the cowl. Supposedly the accepted and generally used method of sweater knitting holds that you must knit both sleeves one after the other, but who wants to do that? I mean, it’s bad enough when making socks! I just got done doing one of these and you want me to do another when I have a chance to do something different but just as productive? Believe me, if there’s an option B, clear the pool ’cause I’m coming in.

So I’m almost four inches into the cowl. Once I hit four inches I’ll be able to go back to the larger sized needles and put in some increases. I’ve got the best kind of motivation to get this done soon: I’m getting really antsy to wear it.

And here’s one more parting shot of the Raven’s Wing yarn. Gorgeous!

    Can’t wait to see that yarn finished. It will be gorgeous! And you’re making great progress on the sweater. Who cares what order you knit it in? The sweater doesn’t care!
