Yarn: Plymouth Encore
Needles: Size 7
I'm getting excited about this sweater. I can see an end in site and I can't wait to finish it. The most difficult part is done.
The sleeves will be striped like the bottom edge. The neckline will have a K1,P1 ribbing in cream and then a green rolled edge like on the front/back bottoms.
One of the reasons why intarsia knitting can be such a pain. Lots of ends to weave in is not my favorite thing to do.
The sweater is for my grandchild, Jakob, now age 2. He loves his dad's John Deere tractor and will cry if they leave the house without the keys for the tractor. The sweater probably won't fit him till next fall. I didn't want to pressure myself into finishing it in his current size. Hopefully, he will still be enthralled with the tractor by then.
I started knitting intarsia when I was only 12 years old. For some reason, I think my tension was better back then or I just didn't know any better. I remember knitting my high school sweater with a mascot on the back to wear to the football games and everyone wanting me to knit them one.
I'm almost done with a Debbie Bliss baby sweater. I only have to assemble it and I can't wait to be done. I purchased cheap yarn at Michael's that looked pretty but has not been fun to knit with. Pics coming later this week!
