Waning summer

I love the long long days of summer. Lovely evening light seems endless. It’s starting to feel more like fall, mostly because all of the schools around me (public and college) are back in session. The time for this Summer Sweater KAL is waning, but I’ve been making decent progress. I took time out for baby socks and big people socks and cast on a whole different sweater, but I’m still working on this lovely Carpino.carpino-3 I’ve long ago memorized the lace repeat. I’ve been working the waist decreases. carpino-2This pattern made me want to make few changes, aside from eliminating a couple of the bust and back increases in the raglan section. It seems like it will be a nice lightweight fall sweater. The September 9th deadline might come and go before this is finished, but I’m glad I’ll have at least an almost-finished sweater come early fall.

The gentle raglan shaping seems like it will be a fine fit and more naturally curved to the shoulder. carpino-4I’ll give you a peek of the Gemini progress soon!

  1. Carpino has been on my must knit list for a while. I love the colour you’re working with, I think that been what’s holding me up, I just can’t pick a colour!

  2. Looks beautiful so far, and I’m interested to hear your thoughts on the things you would change if you knit it again, no doubt once it’s totally done and you see how it turned out. The colour is amazing!

What do you think?
