FO- Goodnight Quick Knit Sweater
With a fresh Caffe Latte my "Good Night" Sweater, a real quick knit is finished. The yarn was not enough for a collar, but every night this knit has helped me relax enough to go sleep in one of the more work-intense autumns in my history. 6 megere days of relaxing in total for 5 months.... But, I feel good anyhow. My Technological Licentiate is in the print, half way to my PhD! TO be really honest, the snow melted, and we went out and raked the leafs on the lawn (six apple trees, 3 pear trees and 2 Cherries leave a lot of leafs)... and my arms are hurting so bad it is hard to type. Well, I have not invested in my health this fall. it is time to start with some work-out, one hour raking and I have spagetti arms, that is ridiculus. I thought knitting make you strong, but I realize it is the hand muscles. well, 8 balls of Point 5 in 131 Ichia colour from Colinette. Bought at Fantasy at a sale, a LYS in Arvika (where I always shop when Im visiting mother and father in law). What is strange is that for some strange reason I cannot get back to Wildapple. Im now knitting away on the IK Lotus Bloom Tank top By Shoji. I knit in the wonderful Du Store Alpakka yarn Baby-Alpacka and Silk, and it just feels great. Thinking about doing some sleeve. But if I keep raking those flabby arms would improve. Ha. I just notice the sweater looks slanted, but it is just me throwing it on to a freezing hubby taking pic's. Ok, Im at least on September on my Sweater a Month KAL. Again, a bit behind, but hey, 3 more before 31st of December should not be impossible. At least Wild-apple and Grey sweater should be finished... and the Lotus would make it 3... Hmm, the Shinano is rotting on resting... Should I rip the sleeves? or go Crazy?.. My artzy sweater? It will take a LONG time.. My big heavy Kochoran (remember?) you suggested to add more collar. Here is the collar addition, but, Im still thinking If I should add even more! Compare from last (see here) I cannot see much difference in the pic, but it is almost one more ball at the neck. Still have one more Ball. Alternativs are lengthening in the back (it IS front heavy, and a but uneven...) or pockets...... Decisions, decisions. Take care out there, and THANK YOU for all nice comments. you faithfull and new Garngamen blog visitors. Love to you!
