Finished Object: Second Raglan

Yup, my second raglan sweater from here is complete!  I finished it last night and am wearing it today.

Again, it’s based on the raglan sweater pattern found in Knitting for Dummies.  I modified the particular sweater so the length is shorter, and and it’s short-sleeved, as well.

I worked on this sweater while at work, while at having good conversation at my in-laws’ house, and while watching TV at home.  I finished it at home because you have to keep track of sleeve row and decreases, so I need a place where I could keep better notes.

The yarn is interesting, in that I have no idea what it is.  I think its heavy worsted/aran weight.  I got it from the yarn mill ends bin at AC Moore.  No matter what it is, I really like the color and the texture.

So, that’s my second raglan. Yay!  If you want to see the details on Ravelry, head on over to the project page.


Second Raglan WIP

I am just having fun with raglan sweaters lately.  I started a second one that I’m knitting on my breaks at work, and it’s going to be short-sleeved.

First, I must apologize for not posting at all last week.  I got sick, and have been dealing with a pretty scary health issue on top of that.  I promise I will get back into the swing things a little better here.

So, this is the short-sleeved one, and the long sleeved one is coming along just fine.  I’m am two-thirds done with the first sleeve.  I always forget how long and tedious knitting a sleeve, any sleeve can be.  Still one almost done, one to go.

This particular raglan is still being knit via the instructions in “Knitting for Dummies.”  I like the formula they present in there.  It seems to be working, but I’ll make that call when I put the sweaters on for the first time.

So, that’s what’s on my needles here at work.
