Work in Progress

OK - I'm nuts!

Working through my stash and I am up to a jumper that I have been planning for months. BUT of course it the heaviest wool I have worked with yet and worked on 6.5mm needles. This means it is coming together very quickly (great after the last 4 ply effort).

BUT (and it is a big one) it is in the middle of our summer so it is about 35 degrees (95 in farenheit) at the moment

I tried short rows and three needle cast off for the shoulders which worked a treat!

well - off to the beach for an afternoon swim and then the pub for a cold beer!

have a good weekend men!

You'll be glad you have that for the evenings next winter. It looks lovely.

QueerJoe's picture's amazing how such a beautiful sweater can be quickly overlooked even by a group whose main focus is knitting...hmmm.

Let me say what the others are hinting at: drop the damned sweater!!

I've looked at the pic 4 times so far, and I still haven't seen a sweater.

Nice photo...sweater included. And I am very jealous of the warm weather. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

yes boys... I have a couple of tatts ;)

looking forward to a cold day to wear this one. I was going to start the sleeves today but just too bloody hot.

the beach was fun and the beer was cold....of course I have woken up with a headache.

have a good one.

I saw that picture this morning over breakfast and had a smile on my face all the way to work. Thanks! Have you ever considered knitting a pair of shorts for your Aussie bum?

As usual Albert speaks with wisdom and clarity. Nice looking sweater too, by the way.
