Knitting THIS Again…

Well…I didn’t lie about being inspired to knit after the KW Knitter’s Fair. On the Sunday after, I searched through one of my many baskets of projects and decided to whip out the Bayside Pullover from the first Coastal Knits book. The Ravelry page for this project is here. I started this project when we were in the UK, see that blog post here. Check out this picture of me from that post..

This is the sweater at present day…

Almost at the right length. Then I just have to do the sleeves.

Gotta love my new notions bag too eh!

I love the shaping in this sweater…

You can the wide-skinny-wide at the waist.

I’ve been knitting the last few nights but as it’s Madeline Tosh Light it’s slow going! I’ll keep at it though 🙂

Home Again

I can’t believe I’m home again, it’s like I never left! It’s nice to be back but I wish there wasn’t any snow at all.

I’ve decided to keep knitting on the Bayside Pullover from Coastal Knits. You can check out the pattern here. Funny enough I started this sweater just before we move to the UK. I’ve progressed slightly…

I love the cables running down the sides…

Unfortunately, it has the same problem as the Boardwalk Vest…someone didn’t pay attention to the tension and it’s a wee bit small! Oh ya, that was me. Fortunately, it is the same yarn as the vest so I know it blocks out well. That means I don’t have to tear it out and start again. I really didn’t want to have to do that!

I also got to spend this nice sunny day today with my Lady Fia…
