This is the second, or third, Jane Richmond pattern I’ve knit up (her Oatmeal Pullover is a favorite of mine). As I’ve come to expect of Jane this pattern is easy to follow and is knitting up fast. Although that last bit likely has something to do with using bulky yarn….
Last week I finished my second oatmeal pullover. I began this one right after we found out we were moving (cause ya gotta have a project when your in the middle of moving). It’s come in handy during long scouting drives (once all the kids stop fighting/fussing and fall asleep) and fittingly I’ve finished it just as we’ve entered into an agreement on what I hope to soon introduce to you all as our new digs. I dare not say more now as we have had worst (or maybe best from were we stand now) luck with real estate and I’d hate to jinx myself now.
Once again the sweater came out great. Last time I shortened it a bit – which I did not do this time. The only changes I’ll probably make in the future would be to make the neck just a tad less wide and maybe add an inch or two in length.
I also finished the child-sized raglan. Once of these days we’ll be dyeing it along with, hopefully, Noah’s raglan- which I just began. Speaking of Noah, he took all of these lovely photos. Thanks Noah!
Once again we got snow just in time for the holidays (8-9 inches). Thanksgiving was gorgeous; the photos don’t do justice but I was limited on time while feeding the animals- had to get the turkey in the oven!
Once that was taken care of I had a little time to make a bit of progress on my pullover (it’s the oatmeal pullover by Jane Richmond). Such a gratifying knit- simple pattern and it’s knitting up fast thanks to the bulky baby alpaca (oh my does it feel nice!). Good thing too, with three little ones to create handmade gifts for this year.
