Summer Studio: One

Heather at beauty that moves is hosting a Summer Studio series on fridays. I have decided to join in.
The premise it to show each week what you are working on.

This week I am still working on Athena's spring sweater. Spring sweater, you read it right. Not spring 2011 but spring 2010.

I cast on this Elizabeth Zimmerman Tomten Jacket way back in February. I am a slow knitter, but not that slow. It is just that I am not one to sit still for long periods of time. If I only watched TV then it would have been done long long ago but as I write this it is still on the needles.

I will finish it this weekend. I will, I will, I will. I bought the zipper and matching thread. I have only half of the last sleeve to knit up. All I have to do then is stitch it together, put on the zipper and weave in the ends. Not a lot of work really, just couple of hours at best.

It is my first attempt at a sweater and it is going well. An easy modular jacket. I haven't decided what to do with the neck yet as I didn't make it with a hood. The end result should be up here really soon. Fingers crossed. I guess it will be Athena's Fall sweater. I just hope it is Fall 2010.

That looks like a beautiful sweater. And I think you're still a faster knitter than I am. ;)

The colors are so beautiful! I bet you'll get it done very soon. Posting plans always helps me!
