knit at nite

some entries about knitting and family to keep myself motivated at projects and the daily grin, i mean grind.



here is my recycled yarn swatch, form of a sweater sleeve. after some debate on blocked vs. unblocked, i think i'm happy with guage and have gone ahead with this first sleeve of te rosada from the winter 04 ik issue.

just a couple of setbacks including several cast ons because i couldn't figure out at first how to purl directly after my yarn over without losing that yarn over in that next stitch. and i purled a rs row that i didn't notice until a few rows later. i panicked a little here as i worried about ripping back and picking up a lace pattern. but the pattern is simple enough that it turned out fine. i am now to the sleeve increases. i'll tack the shot of it here on the end so i can see it near the cami/cowl swatch of the previous post.
