here is the finished pullover on my boy, still unblocked. once i block it, i am sure it will fit also next winter. the collar turned out very wide, which is why i went down 2 needle sizes for the sleeve ribbings. if i knit it again, i will do the same for the collar, as 1 size down in needles did not do the trick. all in all i am pleased with the end result and also with the speed with which this pullover was finished. you can find more details on my ravely project page.
i have now cast on a knitted shoulder bag by moeke yarns, i am knitting it in the yarn the pattern was written for, eco-friendly romanian wool from moeke yarns. this is the first time i am experimenting with cables and i LOVE it! i don't have enough yardage to finish both sides of the bag with this yarn, so i will use another colour and yarn for the back.
reading wise i brought all books back to the library and will not get any new ones before our trip. a little reading about knitting one page at at time just suits my needs at the moment, so it's "at knit's end - meditations for women who knit too much" by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee for now. i am looking for books to download to take with me on our travels so i would love reading recommendations today!
and now it's your turn! what are you knitting and reading???
