I decided yesterday that I was becoming a little irritated and bored with my CotLin dishclothes, so I decided to cast on another project that I was eager to start: My 3-Hour Sweater, which you can see the pattern for here.
It isn't really a three hour sweater for me, I'm not THAT fast yet, but I do have a significant amount done since yesterday:
I'm knitting it with the recycled angora blend that I've been hanging on to for so long! Remember this stuff?
I wanted to try and do it like some of the modifications I saw on Ravelry where the ribbing goes all the way up past the waist, but I was scared I didn't have enough yarn, so it's just a wee bit of ribbing at the bottom, like the pattern calls for. I did take the sweater in significantly in the waist though too, so I hope that works out for me! I nipped it in pretty good, maybe too much, so we'll see about that one once I sew it together. I'm also going to be attempting to make the neck line a wider scoop than the original, which I think will be more flattering as well. With me luck. :)
