The never ending sweater...


Ok, lets be serious...this is like knitting a big swatch. I just don't seem to want to finish it!

Maybe it is because it is like knitting a big swatch...who really enjoys knitting swatches? I still have the sleeves to knit and find some cute little buttons, then I will finally have a finished project.


A reader asked about the debbie bliss Baby Cashmerino and blocking. I steamed these pieces with a steam iron inorder to join the shoulders and knit the neckband. A good blocking will take out the puckering at the decreases (I hope!). I haven't experienced any problems with "flattening" of the stitches. I find this yarn really springs back to life. It is actually one of my most favourite yarns to knit with. Maybe another reader has had a problem with blocking this yarn?

It will end, I hope, 'cause I want to see it! That is such a beautiful colour - reminds me of rich vanilla ice cream!

I haven't ever had problems with the baby cashmerino blocking, either. Your sweater is looking so sweet!
