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.
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.
