Blueberry Moon Update

My Blueberry Moon sweater has only received perfunctory attention these past few weeks. The cold snap early last week ignited my interest again. Yesterday it received almost undivided attention and I was able to knit about 200 yards, as well as redo the shoulder seam.

I reduced the number of buttons, expanded the button holes from one stitch to two, and used a 1K2P rib. All day yesterday I mulled over how I could add expanding cables on the bottom half of the sweater using some A-line shaping in the spirit of Vogue's Silver Belle. As soon as I'm done with this ball on the body, I'll start a sleeve to experiment on.

If I had knit as many stitches on my socks last night as I did on this sweater I would have had both hubby's earth socks and the regia silk self striping socks done. Well, not exactly. I realize stockinette stitch on a 36" needle goes a heck of a lot faster than mostly stockinette on three size US1 dpns. My inner castigator, she prefers to believe the former.

At least I got through two of our netflix movies which I never could have properly watched knitting socks.

That is beautiful. The ribbing along the edges is so neat. Mine always ends up looking messy.

Oh my goodness, this is absolutely wonderful. I am so envious...I am totally intimidated by sweaters.

Blueberry Moon is looking great and really looking forward to seeing how you decide to finish off the waist.

Absolutely loved the pic of your dog posing with new coat! Hmmm ... wonder how long it'd take me to knit one's for my 3 mutleys???
