Knitting Change of Plans

Vacation time means knitting time.  I had started the Bubble Cable Dolman sweater, only to realize I wasn't going to have enough yarn.  But that was the only yarn I brought with me to Alsace and I certainly wasn't going to waste my knitting time, so I took a page from Birgitte at Indigo Orchid and decided to knit a February Pullover

Of course, I don't quite have the appropriate needles, so I'm starting with the sleeves.  That may not be the smartest decision ever, but I'm working with what I have!  Anyhow, I hope it works out because I've been rather productive these last few days.  Here's what I've managed to do so far, working both sleeves at the same time on circular needles:


I'm using the leftover Cheval Blanc yarn that I used on my Renaissance Basket Stitch Cardigan.  This will be a pullover and not a cardigan, and in a pretty different stitch configuration, so I figure no one will notice it's the same yarn. :)

Hoping everyone is enjoying the holidays - I'll see you in 2014!!

  3. I don't know....sleeves are my pet hate when it comes to knitting because there are two of them (obviously...but you know what I mean).So before acute boredom with a knitting project sets in it would be better to knit the sleeves first I think! The wool is a lovely colour and the stitches look beautifully neat too.Looking forward to seeing it finished!!
    Happy New Year!

    1. Here's hoping your theory works and I don't burn out when I have to pay attention to the increases and collar and what not! ;)
