CH 62: Knitting a sweater (and sharing my fears)

Its February and that means that we’re talking about knitting sweaters and garments on the show this month.

In the spirit of the theme of sweater month I ask Anj, the owner of Meadow yarn about her sweater knitting. Anj replied saying:

“Just about our favourite thing to knit is a sweater… The options are infinite and the result always hugely satisfying, whether it’s a fine fair isle or a chunky quick-knit it’s always a pleasure to see a finished sweater roll off the needles. At the moment with temperatures sub-zero we’re thinking about Icelandic Lopi yarn… used to create traditional Icelandic ‘Yoked’ sweaters, known as Lopapeysas, they remain hugely popular with knitters around the world and contemplating the endless shade combinations – from the traditional ‘naturals’ to the vivid, jewel- bright colours – is just about the best fun we have on a chilly day at Meadow Yarn!”

What’s in the WIP?

I’m designing again and enjoying using this stitch dictionary:

Up, Down, All-Around Stitch Dictionary: More than 150 stitch patterns to knit top down, bottom up, back and forth, and in the round

I’m also working on my Custom Fit V Neck Pullover by Amy Herzog.
