My Knitting List

On the Needles - 11/1/13

Just in the nick of time for this post, I finished the front of my Gelsomina sweater!!! My plan is to cast on the sleeves two at a time so when I bind off they'll be done.


I'm already thinking what my next project will be, but in reality I shouldn't be starting a new project any time soon. It will take me a while to knit the sleeves. Then I still have to seam everything together which I've been known to procrastinate on. Once Gelsomina is finished, I should go back to Charleston Tea and finish the buttonband so I can mark that as a finish too. Then I'd be able to record two sweater quantities worth of yarn as used on my yarn report (which would help my numbers tremendously). That way I can start Dianthe in January and the New Year with a clean slate. What are you going to cast on next?

Your sweater is gorgeous! I bet you do have it done before the end of the year. I am not casting on anything until I get a few other things finished.....that's my story today. :)

Great job!

I love your sweater, but I'm definitely not a fan of seaming. I avoid it like the plague!

That's going to be one nice sweater! Sleeves are tedious,aren't they? I'm trying to be good and not casting on anything.....today, anyhow.

I just went and looked at those patterns on Ravelry. Even the sleeves on this sweater have the design on them. It's a gorgeous sweater. I added it to my favourites list. And then I had to look up the other one you mentioned... Dianthe. Love it, and it is also on my favourites list. Maybe all of us waiting to see the final product will give you the incentive to get the seaming done so that we can all see it.
