As I mentioned before, February is for knitting pink because I like being Valentiney in a kitschy way. So my current project is the fuzzy pink sweater with red mohair trim a few of my kind visitors suggested
that I do a while ago. I've finished the back of the sweater, and here's a sneak peek
for you. A few short notes:
1) My camera is picking up the pink in a most bizarre fashion. The yarn looks much less bubble gum-like in true life and is not quite so bright - the actual color is much closer to this
2) This yarn is so fluffy I feel like I'm knitting with cotton balls. Let's hope it looks like a sweater when finished, because at this point the pink fluffiness of it borders on the pimp coat meets the Muppets.
3) The mohair trim at the hem and neck is knit using 4mm needles, but the body of the sweater is straight stockinette stitch knit using 6mm's. It goes fast. Too fast, I think. After doing that cabled sweater on 4mm's for my husband and the fingering wool striped hat on 2.5mm's for my son I almost feel like this project is too easy. (I'm whining a bit now, but I'd bet I'll be yearning for this the next time I do a more complicated project.)
