Summer Knitting

I’m making a sweater.

I’m almost at the armholes

Knit top down, raglan sleeves

It’s slightly boatneck, too. I’m using a pattern/knitalong from Wendy Bernard and Susan B. Anderson, on the Spud and Chloe yarn blog. The knit along is loong over, but the great advice for every step is still there-in the form of blog posts explaining everything I need to know for my (first!) sweater. It’s pretty basic, in terms of color and pattern, but I think it’s the perfect project to get me started with sweater knitting. I’m using some unnamed (but pretty nice, actually) acrylic yarn that my grandma gave to my mom a long while ago to make a sweater for herself, that was never used, and ended up given to me, if I wanted to make a sweater with it. So it’s kind of a “generational” sweater.
