That’s the number of February Lady Sweaters on Ravelry!!!
This is not surprising, seeing that the inspiration for this pattern comes from Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Baby Sweater on Two Needles. Despite the fact that the days are getting warmer and I should probably consider knitting a tank top or stick to sock knitting over the summer, I couldn’t resist the urge to knit this cardigan and so cast on for it a couple weeks ago.
The going has been slow which seems to be a constant feature with all of my knitting projects. I have come to accept the fact that I’m a really, really, really slow knitter. I’m also an easily distracted knitter (Ravelry, knit-blogs, online yarn stores…)
When I began knitting the yoke, I was not too happy with the color of the yarn and the fact that the garter stitch rows seemed never ending didn’t make things move any faster. I finally got done with the yoke yesterday and have begun the lace portion of the body. This is a pretty neat pattern – EZ definitely knew a thing or two or five thousand about knitting.
The color…hmmm…it’s actually growing on me, so all is well in my FLS world. If only I can knit faster, things would be perfect.
