the Red Green sweater grows...

I've finished the body of the Red Green Sweater, and cut the steeks - Brenda was right, it really takes on the shape of a sweater!
Now I need to graft the shoulders, sew down the steeks and pick up and knit the neckline and sleeves.
I really love this sweater so far - as a knitter who's not that fond of purling, the tube construction and cutting of steeks appeals to me for mindless knitting But as someone who needs something more sometimes, this sweater's construction is also intriguing. It's a great blend.
I've got a couple of other projects on the go, plus the acrylic sweater. I just have to wait for Sue to tell me if she wants the beige tweedy one or the black and white marled. I'll make her one, and give her back to other - her sister can find someone to finish it if she wants.
Acrylic knitting during a heat wave. It's a good thing I like Sue...

I think I will henceforth refer to this pattern as the "Red Green Sweater" Not only is it a great Canadian name, I think the choice of red really suits it!

I am intrigued by this sweaters construction. Fascinating to watch you knit it.

It si looking great. It is amazing how that tube ends up as a
sweater. You are right - it is the perfect combination of mindless but not boring.

I finally broke down and ordered some patterns, among them being the Green sweater. Then I'll go to my Briggs and Little shade cards and try to decide what color my green sweater will be.
