Yarn Along

Yarn Along time again!
It seems appropriate to me that I am reading Giant, since my knitting project is also seeming quite giant right now.
The past few sweaters that I have made for myself have all been seamless, and I forget what it's like having pieces everywhere.
It is nice to have little portable pieces, I have been working on the collar during visits to the dentist this week and last and have made some nice progress there.
Not a lot new to report on the book or the knitting, just working my way through the middle chapters on both.
What are you knitting and reading today?

Love the cables and the colour of the sweater! I am nowhere near being advanced enough for large projects in my knitting, but hope to be one day!

To knit a sweater for myself is my knitting dream!~ For now I hone my skills by knitting for my granddaughters. I am making my first shawl though, which will be the first thing I knit for me! Your sweater is gorgeous!

It's funny, I knit something seamless and get annoyed that each row takes so much longer, then I knit something in pieces and get annoyed that I have to seam it... I think a combination of both works for me ;) Love the colour of your yarn

I think your sweater pieces are looking wonderful!

The cables look great! Haven't tried any of those...yet.

I love cables! I can't wait to see your finished work. I agree, it's nice to have portable pieces to work on, I just have the putting them together.
Lovely work!

Jen said...

I try really hard to pick seamless sweaters. But sometimes the fit of a seamed one is a bit better. More structure. It looks lovely all in pieces.

It has been awhile since I have knit a sweater that requires seaming. I have gotten spoiled lately with all my seamless knits! Sometimes seaming up a sweater can be meditating though. Yours is looking great! I look forward to seeing more of it as you progress. :)

Laura Coleman is constantly telling me that constructed sweaters are superior. That may be true, but I don't think I'd ever get them together!

Dentist/dr's appointments are good for something! (kind of like long car rides!) The first sweater I ever knit was in pieces; I haven't done one again--it seems like torture to me to have everything knit, and then to still have to put it all together! Your's is looking great!
