Knitting is coming along well on the Slinky Ribs sweater. I have finally reached the stocking stitch portion of the knit. All this despite distracting myself with a bit of teddy knitting 🙂
I am liking the way this is looking, it’s hard to see the rib detailing here, but it’s cute 🙂
I was also delighted to score two more balls of the yarn from my local yarn shop in the same dyelot – given that this was a gift bought goodness knows where (from a still secret swap!) this is incredibly good luck. I should now be able to have long sleeves, which will make this so cosy! And there are more balls in the shop too, if I need them.
While some people might complain at the idea of 10 or more inches of stocking stitch ahead of them, I’m not going to. We are heading away for my Uni course this afternoon, which is about 5 hours drive each way. I figure that even with sharing the driving, I’ll be grateful for some plain knitting to keep my fingers busy on the drive.
