It’s week seven of the fall knitalong, and that means we’ve come to the end. We’ve seen some great looking projects at all stages from cast on to finishing. There’s so much talent and hard work in the community, it’s inspiring.
Fingering weight sweaters create a drape and fabric that’s closer to what you might expect to buy in stores. They can be lovely to wear, but kind of a bear to knit. As you can see from the image above, the calendar end didn’t necessarily mean the project was completed for all of us. Trudy knocked hers out of the park. The pink and grey combination looks fantastic and she’d be the first to say that her sweater wears well all day and is very comfortable. Great job Trudy! I finished all of the knitting (including lengthening sleeves and changing out the bind off color) but haven’t had the heart to tackle the finishing and blocking. Kim is working on her sleeves (after weaving in all ends), and Danielle knit through the end of the stripes. We’ve all noticed that the bottom hem rolls quite a bit when the sweater is fresh off the needles, but Trudy was able to get hers to hang better by pinning roughly every half inch when blocking.
