Yeah, that's not really what things have been like around here. Without any sort of posting schedule, I just have not posted anything. So, taking a key suggested in a group in one of my favorite places on the entire world wide web, Ravelry, I've decided to adopt some regular posting days. Welcome to the first NJMA weekly Work in Progress Wednesday!
So what is in the works at this moment? Well my little boy wants me to knit him a sweater. A green one, specifically. But since he is on a Where the Wild Things Are kick, I think he'll forgive me when he sees a cream wolf suit sweater. The pattern is from Splendor Knitting. Major mod I'm making is sticking it on my Bond USM knitting machine. It's slow going at the bottom of the ribbing, since there's a lot of hand converting purl stitches to knit stitches for several rows, but it should go more smoothly once I get past the bottom couple inches and only need to convert a few garter rows at each end every other row. (The Bond USM feeds yarn through a carriage across a bed of latch hooks. As the hooks catch the yarn, it creates rows of stockinette stitch, which are purled side facing the knitter. Any thing other than straight stockinette requires manipulation with spare latch hooks and needles).
So that's what's going on in these parts at the moment. Hopefully I'll have something that actually looks like a sweater to show soon!
P.S. There is a WIP Wednesday roundup is here!
