It’s a brand new year, and I wanted to start it up with a new knitting project. I finished out last year knitting from patterns that were classified as novice. This year, I had decided that I wanted to not only keep learning how to read more difficult patterns, but also working my way through my yarn stash. I’m currently making my way through TwoofWands Lemon Drop Sweater. I fell in love as soon as I saw the pattern on Ravelry, and started working on it a couple of days later, because the pattern calls for 5 balls of Category 3 yarn. I didn’t have any that equaled that yardage, and be all the same color.
So I went with a variated yarn Bernat Pop in Lipstick on Your Collar, and I’m still on the bodice and have run out of that ball, so I went to a light pink yarn that was in my stash, I have no Idea where it came from, and I’ll finish the bodice with another ball of white yarn, also from my stash, and then I’ll figure out the color for the sleeves when we get there.
I’ve made some decent progress since this video. I’m on row 51 and working my way through. The pattern is pretty simple, all Stockinette with a few rows of yarn overs. Once I learned how to do that type of stitches, it was pretty much a breeze. Knitting calms me so, and with the last couple of weeks I had I could definitely use the break.
