Katie's (skat130) progress thread *New Sweater in-progress*

4/14/07
I'm almost to the start of the waist shaping now (row 76, here). I still like it.

4/9/07

New Sweater Progress... Thought I'd start at the top for this one.

Here's the pattern (for purchase) on Zephyr Style:
http://www.zephyrstyle.com/catalog/item/2367447/3289215.htm

Here is my progress:

I'm on Line 22 of the pattern. I started on Friday evening and have already ripped back to the beginning (almost) twice. I need to not be distracted when I knit this.

A close up of the lace panel:

This is just over two repeats of the lace pattern.

"Blaze"
Scroll to the bottom of this first post for update...

I'm up to my armpits in it Lol ...in the sweater I'm making. It's Blaze from Knitty.com. I've mentioned it in other threads but here's a link to the pattern in knitty:

And, here's the color I'm doing mine in because I don't look as good in orange (#522 lilac-plum):

I'm surprising not bored by it. Although I'm afraid my son will start carrying 1 double-pointed needle sideways across his lips because that's how I hold the extra needle (my version of a cable needle) on the left-slanting part of the zig-zag.

I'll try to post a progress picture soon.

And, Nicole, maybe I'll bring out the crocheted baby blanket and post a picture of my progress on that one too.

Pictures of my progress which is moving quite slowly lately.

This is a closeup of the zig-zag pattern (sorry it's so huge):

This is a shot of my progress:

3/6/07

I'm done with the body up to where I'm adding on the sleeves. I have one of the sleeves done and have just started on the second sleeve. They're 3/4 sleeves so they go pretty quickly. I took a week off from knitting and now I'm ready to get the whole sweater on one set of needles and finish it. My goal is to have it done before the end of March so that maybe I can wear it before winter is over. Wink

I finished Blaze.

What's Next?

My next project is Rusted Root. Here's a link to the pattern. It's from Zephyr. http://www.zephyrstyle.com/catalog/item/2367447/3289215.htm

Looks great! Blaze is such a pretty pattern, and that yarn looks YUMMY. Are you enjoying knitting with it?

The yarn is super soft, but pretty easy to knit with. I can't wait to wear the finished product.

Katie its AWESOME! I was wondering how you were making out on this sweater a few days ago...i couldn't wait to see it done. And it fits you perfect! (I'm assuming thats you in the pic :lol:)

That new pattern is really pretty! Perfect for warmer weather. I'm jealous of all the time you dedicate to making adult items. I keep telling myself I will make more things for myself....haven't done it yet. Going to check out that website now Lol

Kim, you should knit it with me. It should be much faster than Blaze was and it's knitted in the round so there is minimal finishing. Wink

I really like the Blaze sweater. Your neckline looks different than the pattern. Did you change it?

The color is pretty too, though I love orange, so I might think about doing it in that (after I lose some baby weight, can't afford to knit for my current size!)

I added a little extra length to the collar (so it was less wide). Although, after I wore it for a few hours it approached the pattern width and I had to worry about visible bra strap (vbs) for the rest of the day. If I were to do it all over again, I would have added an extra inch of collar on Blaze because I don't want to have to worry about vbs. Lol

I've started the ribbing at the bottom now. I still have to finish the sleeves and the the ribbing for the collar. I should be finished with the whole thing by the end of this weekend. Yay!
