The Ski Jacket is Finished

Yay, it's finally done. Full details are up on my blog, but here's how it turned out.


The eleventy million ends nearly did me in, but it was worth it. This is a warm and cozy sweater that is going to get a lot of wear.

The Endless Search

Did you ever notice that it's really hard to find the perfect red sweater? I love red, so I always keep my eye open when I'm out shopping. Sadly, none of the red sweaters I find are ever quite right. Perhaps I'm fussy? Regardless, this is one of the things I love about being a knitter. I don't have to search endlessly for the perfect red sweater, I can just make myself one! Of course, sometimes this turns into a search for the perfect red yarn, but that's another story.

My "happy" red ski jacket is zooming along, and the end is almost in sight. Here is a picture of the completed colourwork yoke.



If you're interested in seeing pictures of the inside, skip on over to my blog. Now if you'll excuse me, I have a collar to knit!

Ski Jacket

Hi! I'm new to the KAL, but I love me a good red sweater so I look forward to seeing everyone's completed projects!

Surprisingly, even though red is one of my favourite colours, this is my first hand knitted red sweater. It's the Ski Jacket from Veronik Avery's "Knitting Classic Style", and I'm knitting it out of Lopi in "happy red".


This is my first colourwork project as well, and I've just reached the part of the yoke where the colour pattern begins. I'm very excited about this project, and I think the colours in the yoke will contrast very well with the red. If I can get this done soon, it will be perfect for cool spring evenings.

Kimono Red Vest

There was this pattern in the Rowan #8 Studio book that just really wanted to be knitted. But gray? I mean, really. Grey is such a nice colour but there was this lovely red Rowan Aran on the shelf.

I started in on Feb 22



Had it finished by 26 Feb 08



and then there is the needed mirror picture



I left it home, blocking. Now all a need to do is find a really nice shawl pin.

It was a great change from all the socks (or my Viking Ship Sweater).

I guess I like Red Sweaters...



Well - the red version of the White Gansey is languishing unfinished in the knitting bag, but I have been busy as a bee on the Viridescent Diamond Cardigan - a Norah Gaughan pattern from an old Classic Elite book. I am doing it in Simply Shetland Lambswool and Cashmere in color Red Hot, which is a gorgeous rich red with a subtle tweedy look and feel. Yummy.

Tomato



Here is my first finished project of 2008. It's Tomato by Wendy Bernard from the No Sheep for You book. Details of project modifications on my Knitters-Delight.

Red Karabella Cabled Yoke Cardigan


This is the beginning of my red Karabella Cabled Yoke Cardigan. I started it on December 31 or January 1. At this point, I've finished the body except for the yoke, and have completed one sleeve as far as the yoke. The yarn is Briar Rose "Charity", the same yarn that Anne used for David's Christmas sweater. The color is a dark cranberry red--about the same as the "Abundance" shown on the Briar Rose web site--and definitely not as orange as it appears in the photo. The pattern is all right for an experienced knitter, but it has some errors. Also, the construction of the sweater makes it a little hard to figure out just how many rows to knit in places.

Red Sweater!

Hi - I'm new to the KAL. I've just started my red sweater, the Cinnabar Pullover by Kate Gilbert in Interweave Knits, Fall 2007. Karabella Margrite is the absolutely yummy yarn that was called for, and I decided to use it. I almost never do that, but this was too nice to pass up. I've actually started 2 red sweaters, but this is the first one that I'll finish. (The other is the popular "Urban Aran" in a superwash merino, claret color.) I will have more progress photos soon - I think this will be a relatively quick knit, but I have to finish DH's Christmas gift first! :)
