Sweater Progress Pic

The sweater is coming along. So far it's been knit mostly in truckstops and pubs all over the country. I just have to finish the sleeves and it'll be done.

It's Looking Like A Sweater

The sapphire sweater is shaping up nicely. I've finished the body and started one sleeve. It actually looks like a sweater!

I was working on the sleeve in a small pub last night and got quite a few compliments on it. A couple of people looked at it, looked at me, and couldn't quite connect the two LOL

I hope to post a pic of the finished object soon. It really is coming along more quickly than I had expected.

Sapphire Sweater Is Still Coming Along

I'll try to post an update pic of the sweater soon. It's coming along. I've done the arm holes and am working on the torso now. Amazingly enough it actually fits.

I was working on it in a tavern Saturday evening and a couple of women were looking at it and saying that there was no way that sweater would fit me, it just looked too small. Of course that was because it was scrunched up on the cable.

Nothing would convince them except for slipping it off onto a pair of 60" cables and putting it on to show them.

No big deal I was at a point I wanted to try it on again anyway.

They were really amazed when I reached the end of the skein and showed them how I use the felted join to add the next one. It was like putting on a magic show
