slow and steady.....

Progress on Rogue continues....

This is SO FUN to knit, still!! The stockinette never gets boring because it is always broken up by cables.... on the body, and now the hood, which I've just started, and the sleeves. I think when I get to the sleeves, I'll do them two-at-a-time.... if anything is going to bore me, it'll be the sleeves - they take forever.
Good news - I've tried it on, now that it's "put together" and it fits! Whew.... always my biggest worry!

But, so far so good..... pretty boring for blogging though..... I promise to pick a quick project for ya'll before I get back into something big and blog-boring again.

I'm wondering if I'd look as cute in a vest as Lynne.... check her out!! And, vest = no sleeves!!! Perfection!!

Your Rogue is very impressive. I've been wanting to knit one for awhile now but I've been intimidated by those cables. You can definitely do extra spicy. :)
And I think you'd look great in a vest!

Rogue is looking good and I'm so with you on the vest, no sleeve thing.

Rogue is looking great! You are doing a fantastic job on it.

I've thought of trying a vest, but I don't think I'd look very good in one...who knows, maybe I'll make one and if it doesn't look good on me I could always donate it or give it away.

Lookin' Good! I love the color that you picked out.
You would look good in a vest!

Rogue is beautiful! And of COURSE you'd look "as cute" in a vest! You look cute in everything!


That cable-y vest is really a nice looking design.

I'm super impressed with your knitting speed! Here I was worried you were sick or something because you were absent for a few days (I was bored k?) but you've been busy knitting, right?
Looks so good Lynda. Hurry up and finish so we can see you wear it. :)

Your Rogue is not boring! I am loving watching your progress. The color is so nice. How are you finding the yarn now, do you like it? You mentioned you found it rough, before.

Oh Lynda, it's going to be so beautiful when it's finished and you are doing such beautiful work!!!

What a pretty color for Rogue. I think you will have to model it holding some flowers or in some other suitable springtime pose.

Your Rogue is looking beautiful! The color is fantastic and you're making amazing progress on it. I always get that adrenaline rush, too, wondering if it's going to fit. ;-) Not boring at all- I love to watch garment projects come together. Take care, Lynda! :-)

Your sweater is looking so great. I just love it! I'm knitting with Bartlett yarn right now. Did it take you a while to get used to it? I love the color you chose.

Lynda, I think you need to update your profile. That part about being relatively new to knitting obviously no longer applies. Anyone who can do this is really red hot.

Looking so extra spicy - bring on the ice water!

Rogue is looking quite purty! I have to agree with you about sleeves. I hate my trips to sleeve island. Good luck with yours. Bring chocolate.

Wow, Lynda, you are just rocketing along on Rogue - yay!!

Looking fab! That gets prettier the bigger it gets.

I think it would great as a vest - and you would certainly get much more use from it in your climate!

Hmmm...I really like that yarn. Perhaps I'll use that for the Karabella Shawl Collared Sweater? Hmmm.

Actually even the sleeves on Rogue are fun! That little bit of cable makes it all go faster! Yours is looking fantastic.

Looks great, Lynda! Your progress is amazing. I have nothing but sleeves on the needles right now and it's killing me. They are the Bermuda Triangle of knitting.
