Updated UFO List

I made a mistake and edited my old post (saving the changes) rather than copying and pasting.

Here's my progress: no new finished objects yet but I updated #12 (yellow/orange Rowan Cork garter ridge sweater) and #14 (Noro Silk Garden V neck). I have all the pieces knitted for both now - here's the new pics.

This one I think will turn out fine, as now I bought the brown suede cording to lace through the front eyelets. I haven't grafted together garter stitch before, so I'll have to re-view Leslye Solomon's Sweater Finishing DVD first.

This one looks crazy right now, because of the odd construction (more grafting garter stitch - can you tell that a year ago when I started these projects I liked garter stitch?!) but it should be OK eventually. I didn't bind off the stitches for each piece b/c I thought the grafting would be easier off needles than trying to do it with two bound off pieces.

Here's what it currently looks like (scary and in dire need of blocking!)

And here's what it's supposed to look like when it's done.


Can I just say that I hate when they obviously use twice as many skeins to pull out just the colors that they like for the model sweater? (Or maybe, their skeins didn't have the same colors I did in my dyelot of that shade.) Anyway, all the pieces are knitted.

I hope to get a lot done today as Jim is currently playing golf at his usual Saturday morning tee time and we don't have anything planned until dinner at Morton's tonight. Ahhh - unscheduled time!

Replace the {} with <>, but here's the html coding for it:

{strike} thing you want to strike through goes here {/strike}

Slightly easier than going back and forth in Word!

You can also shorten {strike} down to just {s} if you're feeling lazy. {del} works too. ;)
