Fall colors

As the leaves outside turn a happy yellow and red, here are some shots of my yellow and red sweater. I think I am going to need these happy colors soon, so yesterday I finally started finishing it.

Armholes were stitched,



armholes were cut,


and shoulders were grafted.


One sleeve is almost attached.

Left to do:
Attach the second sleeve, darn in all the ends, and pick up and knit the neck edging. At my speed this could take all week.

Brrrrr, I need to hurry.

  9. Stunning sweater!! I'm so glad your comment on my blog brought me over here!

    I bet I'm one of your few readers (from the US, at least) who knows how your name is pronounced. Not that I *can* pronounce it correctly, exactly, but I do know how it's *supposed* to sound. :-)
