Stash Buster Sweater Progress Pic 11/27/08
The sweater is coming along. I'm working on it as I find time here and there. I now have the sleeve stitches on holders and am working the rest of the body.

I love the colors! Looks like it will be really comfy too.

What kind of yarn are you using?

Are you using a pattern, or just knitting as you go?

Thanks. I'm just using some stuff from my stash, mostly Vanna's Choice and Caron Simply Soft. No pattern, just knitting it up.

The sweater looks great. Are you carrying the yarn down?

I take that it's been hard to get loads lately? We drove to Portland on Wednesday, and it was kind of scary how empty the roads and truck stops are. Hope you and everyone else gets the work you need soon.

Your sweater is coming along nicely, K_G. Rather retro seventies-ish (in the good way).
