What is more beautiful than a clear and crisp day of Autumnal sunshine? A day like today makes me wonder why I don’t own a single Aran or Guernsey sweater, as they have suddenly sprung up everywhere, like beautiful ecru wild flowers. So I am resisting the urge to cast on, even though I really, really want to. I think I have to finish at least 2 sweaters before I am allowed to cast on anything else. That is, certainly, the reasonable thing to do…
I started this Enso sweater at the beginning of September for the Zen Variations knit along, and I am onto the sleeves now. The end is in sight!
Here is the progress so far:
Let the knitting begin! The #zenvariationsknitalong begins today & runs through to the end of December. Jet lag is a mixed blessing... Although I'm craving sleep, I can't have it so I spent most of the wee hours knitting my Enso sweater, which is coming along nicely. I can't seem to get the amazing colour of the @kettleyarnco Islington DK right on screen- it's somehow richer than this looks. #yarnlove #eastlondonknit #ensosweater
My #ensosweater continues, slowly but surely. Today I'm working with the moto: When in Seattle, buy all the flowers. I can't resist the flower stands at Pike Place Market & I think that's a good thing because teal has taken over my life. I blame @kettleyarnco for the gorgeous colourway 'Siren Call' #islingtondk yarn. #zenvariationsknitalong #eastlondonknit #zenvariations
I’m knitting the sleeves with the 2-at-a-time magic loop method, which is really my method of choice. I was convinced that I wanted to knit them with double-pointed needles, but when I tried it, I felt like a had no patience for constantly shifting the needles around. Maybe one of these days I will try Karen Templer’s method of knitting them flat, but for now, round and round I go!
