Yeah, anyone who has knit a sweater knows what I'm talking about.
The Minimalist Cardigan is getting there, slowly but surely (emphasis on slowly). I'm on the last sleeve at this point. Since I sew as I go, here are a couple pictures of my unblocked, one-armed work-in-progress.
The front (with a bonus view up my nostrils, lucky you!):
I still love looking at (and feeling-up!) moss stitch, though I am officially sick of knitting it. I will say, though, that I am rather proud of my seaming on that sleeve. It took awhile to figure out -- there's a reason I usually move decreases a couple stitches away from the edge. The sweater body seems a touch tight at this point, but the moss stitch fabric is exceedingly stretchy, and those stockinette borders are currently tubes (which better sort itself out in blocking -- I expect there to be rolling, but tubes...well, tubes are not acceptable!).
I have made a number of minor adjustments to the pattern, which I'll write out when the whole thing is finished.
And even more excitement...the Fall Knitty is up! The one pattern that really leapt out at me is Henry -- that's the perfect man scarf. I may even knit if for my boyfriend if he approves -- seriously. For me, knitting a scarf out of fingering weight yarn is true love, right there. Though, if he doesn't like it, I may just have to make it for myself. Because hey, I love myself too.
I'm also liking Foliage and Totally Autumn. The sweaters aren't jumping out at me much (I've already knit a very similar sweater to Mr. Greenjeans), except maybe for Neiman, and I'm not much of a sock knitter.
And if these aren't cute, I don't know what is!
