At the start of summer, I made a commitment to have only a few WIPs on my needles and now that summer is coming to a close, I'm happy to say that I've kept that commitment. I've been knitting for the Jump for Fall challenge where I'm knitting garments for my fall/winter wardrobe. A lovely group of knitters are doing this with me as an on-going KAL, and I've been inspired by what everyone is working on.
Along with my Westwood Blouse and Sea Pines Pullover, I cast on a new and original design for Miranda: a late summer/early fall open-lace pullover. I'm knitting with Rowan Calmer (could there be anything more delicious?), and am using a similar top-down raglan formula as I did on my Sea Pines.
The color is beautiful -- somewhere between an ocean blue and a teal green -- and the stitch pattern is one that I thought up in my head. Fortunately, it's translating well onto my needles. I'm using both a dropped stitch, k2tog combination with a simple YO and so far, we're both pleased with how the pullover is developing.
I'm as excited about the Jump for Fall challenge as I was when I first committed to try it. I expect to have lots to show you next week.
Happy weekend knitting, everyone.
