I’ve been working on this Flax sweater that I’m calling ‘Mir Ist Kalt’ due to one of my boyfriend’s love of the A/C on Jotunheim temperatures (68F or lower). It is blue, to reflect the color of my cold skin during those times.
I’m making this sweater in Knit Picks - Wool of the Andes, in the colorway Winter Night.
I’ve been knitting on this since 26 August and this is my fifth iteration of the yoke. I am finally a mere six rounds from the magic stitch counts for my size, then I can cast on stitches to form the sleeves and put them on waste yarn. From there, it is an epic saga of knitting down the body of the sweater before casting off and then finishing the sleeves.
I really love this knit because this is the first sweater I will have completed once it’s done. I love the pattern, I love the yarn, the color of the yarn (though this totally getting remade in other colors). This is seamless construction, which is wonderful. In short, I’m really happy.
I am hoping to get this finished by NaNoWriMo. Wishful thinking? Perhaps, but it is a goal I’ve set for myself.
