Videocast: Snappy Stitches – Episode 12

See the show notes for Episode 11! I only talked about my progress on things already talked about on previous episodes.


September is for Sweaters…

Happy September! Fall is definitely in the air first thing in the morning and that has me thinking about sweaters (and knits of all kinds really). I told myself that I wasn’t going to start knitting sweaters until November this year, but I just can’t help myself. It started innocently enough, with a couple of swatches –

Two days ago, I cast on for the Goodale Cardi


And yesterday, I cast on for the Breakwater Pulli


Here’s a little group photo of my progress so far –

Goodale and Breakwater

Breakwater is going surprisingly quickly for a fingering weight sweater –

I absolutely love the woven stitch detail on the collar –

I’m going to see how much I can possibly knit this weekend while enjoying the last long weekend of summer. We are also hoping to get another hike in over the weekend, but I think I’ll still make pretty good progress.

Oh yeah, I also made some 3 stitch icord sections for button loops to use on the collar of the Mondo Cardi –

Now, I just need to sew on the buttons and weave in the ends. I suspect this fall will be full of sweatery goodness.

Have a great last long weekend of summer!
