    Default I Started The Sweater!!

    Yesterday I finally got started on the sweater for Cooper. DH is a little worried that the color is a bit girly. I think it will be fine. It's varying shades of blue, but mostly on the lighter side. I actually wanted a darker blue with some teal in it, but I couldn't get enough balls of the same dye lot grrrrrr. So I went with the lighter.

    I'm a little confused, as the pattern says I need straight and circular needles, but doesn't specify where I am to use each of them? Maybe it's just for personal preference? The back, front and sleeves are all knit separately and sewn together.

    Oh well. I started on the straight needles because that's what I know lol.

    I told Sierra that if I do okay and don't pull all my hair out making it, then I'd try and make her one afterwards.

    Yea for starting! We'll need progress pictures.

    You can easily knit flat on circular needles. Anything that's knit in the round will need circular needles.

    So I am doing pretty well. I'm happy with how it's going. I'm almost done I have taken some pics, just haven't gotten them on to the computer.

    I just have the sleeve and side seams left to sew together. I have figured out a better way to sew the pieces together, but this yarn is not condusive to sewing, so it's a slow process. Hopefully I will be done one side by the time I go to bed tonight.

    Cooper actually tolerates having it put on him now, because up until today he'd just shriek and push it away when I showed it to him. I was getting a little discouraged as I'd put in so much work. I think he just couldn't tell what it was, and freaked out a bit.
