Getting back into things

It was a good thing that I ALWAYS take extra projects when we go out of town. This last weekend when I had to wait for instructions for the rolled neck pullover that I just finished, I got to work on my White gansey knit a-long project. I'm altering the pattern to add an Hourglass motif to the top middle of the sweater. It's for my MIL and she is always cold and hopes to wear it while golfing. I've assured her that with the armhole gussets that she will be able to. I really like knitting in this style. Gansey's are knit in the round until you get to the arm holes and then knit flat for the front and back. They also have saddle shoulders with sleeves knit from the top down.

With all the stitch detail I don't get board knitting this sweater. This is a big plus as I normally knit SOCKS. In fact I've knit over 250 pair in the last 4 years. I love to knit socks but I'm branching out to do these sweaters and then back to socks as all my friends want a pair. That is all my non-knitting friends....

stay in stitches...
