One, Two and Three

I'm back!! I am in the swing again after many months of no posts. I guess painting had been occupying my time. 

At least I have been knitting.  I actually finished a gansey cardigan that I'm wearing now. 

I've also commenced working on some spindle spinning. As you can see the three steps are present. The spun singles, the center pull ball and the plied yarn.

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.
