Latest finished shawl. Pretty happy with this one. It's the most complicated knitted project that I've attempted since I decided to teach myself to knit earlier this year. Once I got going, it really wasn't that hard.
I'm knitting the Lystra Pullover from the book Knitting Plus. And Woo hoo, I just finished the back and have it blocking. I started on the body rather than the sleeves, because I’m going to need to make some sleeve modifications using the chart in the book. I modified the body by making it a-line. I wanted plenty of room around the hips. Of course, now I’m worried I made it too big at the bottom and too little at the top. LOL We’ll see. Since I’m a newbie, I’m using this as a learning project. I hope to have a nice basic sweater pattern adjusted to fit me when I’m done.
This is what I'm currently working on. It's called the Weekend Pullover by Ellen K. Gormley in Crochet Today, March/April '09. I'm using Knit Picks Comfy Worsted in October. It's a nice orange/rust cotton blend. So far, I'm lovin' it.
