my Gray Day Pullover ....,
my Diagonal Pullover .....,
and the irresistible Little Coffee Bean cardigan ....
For the astute knitter with a keen eye, you know what these four WIPs have in common. I love raglan, top-down, and seamless garments. Usually knit in one piece, I don't have to worry about seams or set-in sleeves or picking up stitches. Here is where monogamy starts to be too comfortable. Now that I've finished my first Jump for Fall challenge (my Westwood Blouse) and am happily knitting along on these other projects, I want to take my knitting to the next level.
You may remember my epic fail with set-in sleeves last spring. I'll admit that experience was painful and has made me shy away from cardigans and sweaters with seams. But, dear friends, I think I'm ready to get back on the (knitted) horse and now turn to you for advice and suggestions.
If you have a favorite, well-written pattern for a cardigan or pullover with set-in sleeves, I would love to hear about it. I'm willing ... and maybe just a wee bit able.
Oh, and for those you who asked, here I am wearing my new sweater!
