The Red Green Sweater continues. I've added the sleeve steeks, and am approaching the neckline steek. It's really a genius construction - especially for those of us that not as enamoured with the purl stitch as with the knit stitch. It's basically a big tube, with strategic steeks placed here and there to be addressed later.
I love this - the yarn is fairly rustic and rough, but from experience, I know it softens up with a wash, so I have no worries about it. But knitting it up - it has almost a crisp hand to it, making it nice to knit with. And I love the colour. Red is notoriously hard to photograph correctly - in reality, it's not quite this bright, but has more of a blue undertone - I love it, and I know Sue will.
It's perfect knitting for me right now - reasonably mindless with occasional measuring. I've got at least another week where things are muddling my brain, so this will be my project of choice for that time.
