getting there!

well i found some variegated blue/green wool at the local shop [Manos - Caribe 116]
the blues (and greens) work well with the rest of the sweater - i have added an i-cord trim which i think really finishes up the garter stitch edges

i added stripes to the second sleeve as it looked like there was no way i had enough of the yellow .... but now that the sleeve is cast-off it looks like i have enough ..... so think i'll frog it and re-knit the sleeve in the original variegated yellow/green/blue

so i'm almost there! i'd like to add pockets, the arm seams need to be finished and the zipper needs to be sewn in

wool woes

i'm almost done knitting my tomten sweater but gaah! i don't enough to finish the sleeve .... i bought the last 4 skeins of cute variegated wool (Lorna's Laces Bullfrogs and Butterflies Multi) on sale at the Knit Cafe with Willa, and figured i had plenty. no no no
I don't really feel have the time to search online for the dye lot etc .. so am going to the local wool shop today in hopes i can find a solid colour to finish it off with - wish me luck

latest project - bought the wool in toronto with willa so i had something to knit at V-fest and on the train to montreal - i'm really loving the colour and the pattern - but ummm bit surprised how big the size is!

during v-fest they had staff photographers wandering around snapping pics - here is will + i knitting on day 2 (yep you can tell it is the last of the festival - oh so glam)
