Tempting Sweater

My current knitting project is going great; I can't believe I'm as far as I am. I just have to say I think I am able to handle all the k2, p2 ribbing because of knitting 'continental style'. This project has taught me the proper way to purl continental and I couldn't be happier. This new sweater will definitely be added to my wardrobe in the very near future. I still have to decide how long to make the sleeves. I'm not sure if I really want the 4" sleeves called for in the pattern. I'll probably measure a sleeves on some other sweaters and go from there. I have decided though I am going to attempt both sleeves at the same time. "Magic loop" hopefully it will work to my advantage.

Once this is finished it will officially be time to knit some Xmas presents. I still don't know what I'll knit my Dad. What to knit for someone who doesn't wear hats, scarves, gloves... and no way would I attempt a sweater for a guy. Oh well I'll think of something.... I hope.


Welcome to all who have come to read my blog. Please understand that this is a total Work in Progress. I vow to get better as time goes on.
