Yarn Along

I finished Clothilde’s Phoebe sweater last week, and am now making a start on one for Rose.  She requested the same color – Quince & Co’s Winesap.  It reminds me of Little Red Ridinghood with this pattern.  I’ve finished the decorative border on the bottom and am struggling through the monotonous body stocking stitch.  I guess I share Elizabeth Zimmerman’s dislike of purling (it’s harder on my hands with the thicker yarn), and I found myself trying to knit backwards to avoid it the other day!

I would have liked to post pictures of Clothilde in the Phoebe sweater, but she wouldn’t let me put it on her at all.  I can’t really blame her, as it’s been in the 90’s during the day, and it’s really too hot to be knitting!  We have such a short winter, though, that if I want to knit for next winter it must be done now.
