Casas Grandes Sweater Underway

albert's picture

Well, I have spun up enough of my three colors to begin knitting my sweater which is named for the style of Native American pottery from which I have adapted the diamond pattern. I done with the ribbing and am now starting the pattern. I am weaving in as opposed to stranding and will be steeking the arm and neck holes. I will post updates as I progress for good or ill.

Oh Albert! I love the colors! I can't wait to see your progress! I get so excited when all of you show your new projects, and to think I won't even finish a scarf in the time it takes you to finish this whole sweater.

The suspense... already off to a beautiful start. I know this is going to be one amazing sweater. I can't wait to see it.

That yarn is to "dye" for! Just punning around a little but it is absolutely beautiful! I can't wait to see it finished!

Great colours and your spinning looks amazing.

Have been knitting for years. I knit continually then will try another craft, but will return to the needles.

Brilliant! It is going to be truly striking.

I like what I see so far, and I am enjoying your step by step updates on the project. I've never spun before (and currently have no plans on learning), so that part of the process just seems magical to me. I was a bit leery of the colors you chose, but now that I see them coming together I admire your color sense. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing the pattern start to unfold!
