The stockinette sweater parade continues!

My mind is surprisingly alive and engaged even though I am knitting about a mile of stockinette on this sweater, or at least 1300 yards.

This is the fifth time I’ve worked on a Hannah Fettig sweater in the past year. Crazy, huh? I just think she’s got good style, I guess. I made two Featherweight Cardigans, a Tiny Rocky Coast, a Rocky Coast Cardigan, and this is an update on my Breezy Cardigan. I’m pretty sure my next sweater is going to be another one of her designs, because Matt gave me 1600 yards of this lovely yarn for Christmas!

Come to think of it, last year was a pretty good year for sweaters! I made 9 sweaters last year, if you count a Liesl tunic as a sweater. Three of these were baby things, but I’m quite chuffed at my knitting progress for last year. Excuse my British slang. I love it, and I just reread all of the Harry Potter books so it’s fresh in my mind. I’ve also been gorging on British shows on Hulu like Fresh Meat, Pramface, and Inbetweeners, as well as some good ol’ Downton Abbey while I knit all of this stockinette.

Happy Wednesday!

  1. I love it. Definitely. Even more so, because I haven’t yet succeded in knitting a sweater (my swatch and the original project are always WAY OFF – so seeing you knitting one after another, I get a steady reminder that it is indeed possible to knit a big garment for oneself without fluffing it completely. 😉

  2. I am loving sweaters as well too! This is going to be so lovely 🙂 I love that you use chuffed! I love British slang, always wish we said cool things like that in the states. Cheers! 😉

  3. I’ve been coveting the Walpole, too, and just might need to cast that baby on. You should definitely feel chuffed — I’m impressed.

  4. I just started Downton Abbey and I can already tell it’s going to be good for my knitting (by which I mean, I may as well make the hours I’ll devote to watching it productive ones.)

    Great colour on that sweater!

  5. I love Hannah Fetig’s patterns too! They look so beautiful, but the miles of stockinette are tough. I’ve got one of her sweaters sitting around half done for that very reason!
