knit it up October 11, 2012

actual knitting getting done…

This was my traveling companion recently and has become the evening knitting. Finding a nice little lamp, focused on the moving stitches makes it easy to work on the dark yarn without going insane.

The texture is slightly amusing; the front band tickles me too.

Chic Knits UMA

This is UMA, made from the top down, starting with the Back shoulder line.

Then each Front is started at the back neckline with a Neckband and
then sts are picked up across the shoulder after the Neckband is to length.

The sections are worked to the underarm, where they are joined
and worked as one to hem.

I happily reached the Pocket Point last night — you put some of the stitches on scrap yarn to hold, cast on more sts for the pocket band, which is right in the body of the sweater.

Just a few more inches and this will be at the hem!

I had a lot of fun taking these pictures. I think.

It’s getting darker all the time out at the Little Cabin in the Woods (insert “omg October is almost half over!” here) and I’m determined to learn fill-lighting. Probably doesn’t help that my WIP is BLACK~! (and the curtains white) but why start easy?!.

[Anything to avoid P.A.C.K.I.N.G.]

    I hate packing & can only imagine the horror of packing up all my worldly sh*t to move more than half a continent. Knit baby, knit! Sweet design – I immediately thought perfect for a black sweater :o} You’ll be a pro with the lighting after this, too.

    Lovely! I love the look of black sweaters, but have been hesitant to cast on. This is quite inspiring. Good luck with the packing. I’d procrastinate too.

    This morning when I was getting ready for work I was wishing I had already knit my Uma so I could wear it today. It was very chilly this morning!

    Good luck on the packing. I really don’t love packing myself, but I’m hoping that I will be able to knit down my stash by the next time the packing needs to happen.

    This: “…I’m hoping that I will be able to knit down my stash”

    heh!!! — I was trying to do this and utterly failed (ie. was swallowed alive by the stash)!

    Now a bunch of it is in storage until I go but I’ve forgotten actually what I kept. Should be a good surprise when I finally unpack in Portland.
