First sleeve on the way

Finally first sleeve of my dear daughter's i Heart you is coming up. The sweater has been som what frogged the last couple of weeks. I've been playing with KnittingDane codes instead. Ex the main page has changed - for the better I think .

I'm also in the process of updating all the old Danish Knit Articles. Swing by the Danish version of this site to get a glimpse of what's getting translated (when time comes).

Status on the hearts

As always I knit everywhere. Picking up kids from school is a perfect time for knitting. I'm never in a hurry. I just knit yet another round. Then the kids can finish up nice and slowly - as always.

As an extra bonus - there's always a chance to talk about knitting. Both kids and grown ups stop on their way just to talk about knitting. And those kids - they really know how to show excitement. I like it - I like it a lot

Here's yesterdays status:

Heart Sweater - i heart you

The Heart Sweater in action

Finally I got pictures of my dear daugher in the Heart Sweater. Ok admitted, didn't finish before christmas as I promised, and I didn't even start  the second sweater for my other daughter either. Luckily my daugther her self told me to relax and not fuss over knitting. You just gotta love 'em

But this lady down here - she's not easy to get pictures of.

Did anyone say gauge swatch?!

The Heart Sweater in progress

For several years I have wanted to knit a sweater for my second oldest daughter. Then it could be past on to the next daugther and the next again. Perfect now that I never find the time for all the knit I'm dreaming about.

Both pattern and yarn has already been approved by the daugther. And lucky me, I found an old gauge swatch in stockinette stitch, which I could recalculate stitches from - or could I??

I casted on the stitches!

And knit...

Pretty far indeed...

So far I know can get my self to ravel up the whole work

So now I'm just about done with a sweater for my second youngest daughter. Also I promised my second oldest daughter that I will finish her sweater before christmas this year. There goes the idea of any other knitted christmas presents this year.
