Left Front and one Sleeve of Tweedy Bird…

To get an idea of how my sleeve work is coming on this Fusion (hand & machine knit) Cardigan, I pinned the sleeve to the armhole. Checking the curve fit early on saves me much PAIN later, I’ve found. Now I can go on to the next sleeve with my cap recipe and wail…

I’ve been machine knitting a piece here and there when I find time on the weekends – for some reason, this isn’t something I found I like to do when I get home after my *day job*. I have the same feeling about finishing work – unless I have an uninterrupted session, it’s all bets off…

For the neckline on Tweedy – I’m making a Loop Stitch Collar using the stitch pattern as shown in this August 20th entry. This pattern was found in an old Mon Tricot stitch dictionary and has HAPPILY popped up all over the place – if you go down a couple entries you see it on a Jaeger Sweater – that the lovely and talented Michelle from our KIP group just finished this week!

It is so beautiful my eyes popped! The yarn is very warm and toasty but LIGHT! YUM – and VA VA VOOOOOM Michelle – it is fabulous…

My sweater, although similar, is a smaller gauge and the yarn (a cotton/acrylic blend) makes it much more bi-seasonal. But now, I’m want’n to make the Big Loop Version myself. It reminds me of all the fur trimmed suede coats I’ve seen DOWNTOWN…

Dirty Little Secret: IMHO, digital camera work will never be as sharp and focused as analog… Witness the above photo – no matter what I did, it looks oof and a little wiggly. LoRez and repeating patterns put this format into a TAILSPIN…
