Work in Progress 207

Hi everyone! Sorry today's post is a little late! I actually have a new project to share with you today.


I've been obsessing over the Armande by Andi Satterlund. Ever seen I saw the pattern a few weeks ago (though since it was a Knitty pattern I'm sure I've seen it before and didn't remember), I couldn't stop thinking about it. I realized despite having a thousand projects to work on, I needed to cast on. I had some Candy Skein Yummy Worsted from the Miele vest I had cast on. I knew I would wear this more, so I frogged that for this.

Sorry for the crappy picture but it's hard to get it all in picture at the moment. It's a bottom up construction and right now I've built the inside of the pockets and are now picking them up as the sweater grows. This is my first time doing pockets and I love how they're constructed for this sweater! Also, another great thing about this pattern, the button band is built in! No need for picking up hundreds of stitches at the end of knitting the body and worrying about puckering.

I can't wait to get this sweater off the needles and wearing it once it gets cooler here.

Also, for those who haven't seen it, the September colorway, Acai Berry is now available at Candyskein.com!


That's it for me today! I hope you have a great rest of your week.

  2. The Armande is similar to a sweater I knitted for myself last year. It is going to be very pretty in that yarn. Thanks for hosting the link-up.
