I've had such an amazing lazy weekend with lots of knitting and lots of time with Mr. Pie. He's back on his rotating shift schedule, so we'll only get one weekend together a month again. A far cry away from every weekend like we've had for the last 6 months.
And it turned out to be very productive in a knitterly kind of way. I finished my Pipit Sweater!
The fact that it's knit in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino doesn't hurt either. ;)
You'll also notice that my sleeves and neck are rolled, unlike the picture of the pattern. I have no idea how they got theirs to NOT roll since it's just stockinette bound off. The pattern also gives instructions for a kind of baseball jersey shaped bottom where it dips down in the front and back a little bit. I was running short on yarn so I skipped it, just doing a bottom trim like my last sweater where I did one purl row, knit a few more rows and then bound off, tucking the bound edge up under. I like how it looks nice and finished. OH, I also knit the sleeves in the round so that there was ZERO seaming and/or finishing! Woo-Hoo!
So what do you think?? I'll have another FO to show you tomorrow, too!
