Last week, I mentioned that I was going to make a scarf or cowl/hat set with Bernat Boa speciality yarn. I choose the Blue, called "Blue Bird" because it's such a pretty colour.
The other item I spent some time on was my dark rose sweater. I finished the back after measuring the armholes 30 times to make sure I had them the right size. Seriously, I thought I was losing my mind and had developed OCD. I measured and knit and measured and knit and measured and measured and measured. Then knit some more. Finally, I called it done and started a sleeve. I'm not going to show you the back just yet. It turned out really nice, though. Here's the beginning of the sleeve:
It won't be too exciting because it's all ribbing...the whole sleeve...all the way up to the shoulder. A ribbing-lover's dream! It should knit up fairly quickly, though.
I think that's it for this week. Don't forget to head over to Heather's website to see what she and everyone else is doing.
Needlework Tuesday is hosted by Heather over at Books and Quilts.
