It’s Hoodie Time

I’ve recently been suffering from a bit of crafting-malaise coupled with general lethargy and unwellness. I called in sick to work yesterday and managed to laze around the house drinking tea, watching bad television, and knitting on one of my oldest WIPs:

rogue shoulder

Phew! I am done with the front of Rogue and I have bound off the shoulder seams (three needle bind off, of course). All I have left is the hood and the finishing (I finished the sleeves a long, long time ago). I was hoping to finish this sweater before the end of fall, and I think it is quite possible that I will now, even if the finishing takes me a month (and it just might).

Amidst all the lethargy, I did pick up some yarn that I had been musing about for a while, all due to the WEBS sale.

elsebeth lavold silky tweed in 001 (black with orange and purple tweed)

Luckily 12 hanks of it doesn’t take up much stash space!

    Rogue is a really pretty color! I would love to make one myself, but my seaming needs lots of work before I undertake a project like that. Plus, I knit slow so mine would be way out of fashion by the time I was done. Thanks for the link to the cheapest sorce of overstoke Noro in history (smacks forhead).

    Great color on Rogue – the finishing is always the slow part for me – progress gets slowed very quickly!

    Love the silky tweed color – the flecks add so much texture!
