This started out as a knitting blog, but as with almost everyone who blogs, this has turned into a life blog. In the beginning I reported on my knitting progress every day and there was plenty to report. Here it is 10 years later and I'm still knitting, not nearly as much, nor as often, but I still knit. I have proof!
Knit and blocked, ready and waiting, are the backs of Acorn Trail (red) and Hayward (gray). The yarn I'm using for Hayward, a luxurious cashmere blend from Sunday Knits, is wonderful to touch (and knit) and will be delicious against the skin. I am more excited to finish this sweater than I am another knitting. I've, also, knit the first sleeve and have cast on for the second. Hayward is an oversized sweater, which accounts for the size difference in the two backs.
The yarn for Acorn Trail, a discontinued Rowan Tweed, is rough, hard to knit (because I'm a tight knitter), and yet, blocks out into a soft sturdy fabric, perfect for a tweedy cabled cardigan. In addition to the back, I've also finished the right front and I'm ready to seam the two pieces together.
I confess to being worried about several aspects of the fit. Custom Fit relies on your own measurements, which means it is imperative they are correct. I'm nervous about mine being right and I'll only be comforted after I've sewn the pieces together. Trial and error is the name of the game.
