Today I'm going out to a wildlife preserve to watch a raptor specialist capture and tag (hopefully) a red-tailed hawk. I'll have my trusty camera and hope to get some great pictures for you. In the meantime, I thought all of you knitting buffs out there might like to see my latest project: a sweater!
After working on scarves (two) and hats (five), I decided to try something a little different and finally decided on this sweater (click to enlarge). It's knit on circular needles from the neck down, with raglan sleeves. You can see I've already gotten to the body and will go back later and knit the sleeves afterwards. The neckline curls up, so I peeked at the directions to find that I'll go back later and pick up stitches from around the neckline and knit to make it lay flat (whew!).
Other than the tedium of knitting all the time with no purling or increases, I don't have to count any more, like I did when I was increasing for the raglan, just knit. It's a nice thing to do while sitting in front of the TV watching reruns of NCIS. And I'm having fun! I just hope this sweater won't be so warm that I'll never get a chance to wear it.
