I’ve been devoting most of my knitting time to Two Track, a sweater with an unusual construction. Although it looks like one piece up above, I’m actually knitting two separate pieces. You start at the cuff edge of the sleeves and knit in. And, you’re knitting both the front and back at the same time (there was a bit of excitement in the cast on). I’ve got miles of stockinette to go, and then there is a bit of magic to put in a neckline before using a three needle bind off to connect the two fronts down the middle and then do the same for the backside.
I’m knitting with The Plucky Knitter’s Lodge Worsted: 60% Merino, 20% Cotton, 10% Silk, 10% Linen / Flax. It’s a very lovely yarn, and the dye uptake with this particular fiber mix makes for soft, heathered colors. Although this is my coffee shop knitting at the moment, because I can knit stockinette and talk, I am really looking forward to wearing the finished sweater. It gets ribbing on the bottom and a nice full cowl on the top, so it will definitely be a while, but it’s so lovely! I really love both the yarn and the pattern.
