WIP Brocade sweater
1 Attachment(s)
I got the back done for the Kaffe Fassett sweater! I did the sleeves first, so now I have to get the front done. Not sure if I'll get it done before the holidays, though.

I found the pattern in Rowan Magazine number 38 and I'm using Cleckheaton Country 8ply Naturals.

Looks gorgeous Ingrid! I actually saw that Rowan yesterday at the LYS and I had totally forgotten that you were working on it. It looked so familiar to me and I was like :?? where had I seen that before? Duh. LOVE IT and BEAUTIFUL AS ALWAYS, OH KNITTING GODDESS :notworthy:

That is STUNNING, Ingrid!

Thanks! It looks better in the picture or far away than it does close up. It's lumpy. I'm crossing my fingers that it will flatten out when I block it. It did for my other lumpy sweater, but I'm always nervous about blocking.

Ingrid, are you stranding, or using intarsia? :??

Mostly intarsia, but I found that there were places where I could strand the blue across--like when there was only a stitch or two of the tan. When it got to be more than about three stitches and it was going to stay that way or get wider, I added another strand. The back looks rather like a shag carpet. :rollseyes: but I tried to secure each end as I went. I still have go through each one and make sure it won't unravel, though. Not my favorite thing to do.

Ingrid, :notworthy: My Queen :notworthy: it is simply GAWGEOUS!! Just GAWGEOUS!! When I'm a grown up knitter I want to knit like you, :notworthy: My Queen O' Knitting :notworthy:

Oh, please, Rebecca--looks who's talking!!

Thank you, though, I really appreciate it. :heart:

Wow, Ingrid! That is just gorgeous! :heart:

You must have the most amazing power of concentration! I can't even make k2p2 ribbing consistently (random seed stitch and all). What is your secret?

Post-it notes and a chart. No secrets that I can think of. Determination, too. ;)
