Mazzy Progress

Happy Monday!

I thought I'd share a few pictures really quickly of the Mazzy sweater knit-a-long that I'm leading at Knit Stitch Saturday mornings.

We have a great group of ladies knitting this sweater in so many fun colours.  I see that my pictures show my lovely purple yarn in a variety of shades!  It really is a dark purple.





 ribbing finished,

pocket panels made,


pockets attached!


My third ball of yarn ready to start knitting the body of the sweater.  I'm set for a week of rhythmic, relaxing stockinette stitch as I knit the body of the sweater up to the arm holes.  

I can't wait to wear this sweater!

New Year, New Sweater


Happy New Year!  I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and is ready to make this an amazingly wonderful year!  I'm celebrating the start of 2017 with a new sweater. So, that of course means my first knitting of the new year is a gauge swatch.  


I'm going to knit this swatch a little longer then give it a gentle wash and block then check my stitches per inch. But, so for I'm liking the stitch definition and the fabric that is knitting up.

What is your first project of the year?

Happy knitting,
Louise
