I started out knitting a sweater, using a Norwegian pattern which I found on the internet.
I saw one finished and really liked it. I had nothing but problems with it and finally got
the front and back finished -- When I started the sleeves the instructions were poorly
written and after trying 4 times and even taking it to a knitting store - found out that
the whole sleeve pattern was incorrect. I trie
d to design my own sleeves, but with the
pattern on the whole piece , I found it more trouble than it was worth. I therefore decided to make a vest
from the back and front and actually I am quite happy with it. I crochet a narrow design around
the neck and sleeve openings and bought myself a black long sleeved t shirt to wear with it.
I decided to start another plain pullover with a seed stitch strip 3" wide up the center front -- it is well under way and I am going to get lots of use out of it. It is still only Sept. and we have had
a bit of snow already -- We have had a terrible summer - it is very cold out and everyone is
fed up with the bad weather. Especially as winter seems to be arriving early! I bought a
pretty medium pink and will knit it on the round.
I am enjoying my break from landscapes and thread painting and once I finish the 2nd
sweater I will get back at it.
