More progress...


Been working on my Loppem cardigan; a little bit here and a little bit there. I'm finally to the sleeve section of the pattern...I've bound off the stitches and am ready to cast on the other side of the sleeve! I also started the Love Bite scarf yesterday...I'd like to have it done by the time of the Twilight movie. I'm using my Wollmeise for it. I'm finding I'm not in love with this yarn...very splitty. Starting to wonder what all the hoopla is about this yarn? Anyone else had problems with this stuff? Tomorrow should be the next part of the Mystery beret knit a long...whoohoo; excited to see what the next part brings!

That sucks when you're not in love with the yarn. It makes the knitting slow going. Looks good tho. I haven't made a grown up sweater in 18 years at least.

I have no clue about that yarn, I've never been able to score any (I only tried once then thought "poopoo on you wooly"). Maybe it'll get better? Have you switched needle types?

That scarf is way cool! You're totally getting into this vampire thing! ;O)

Your sweater is coming along great! I wish I had the nerve to make an adult size sweater. Still too cheap and too lazy! LOL!

I don't like knitting with Wollmeise either. But, I love, love, love the colorways. I like to take mine out & look at it.
