What’s on the needles?

Things have been fairly quiet on the knitting front here lately, and here’s why…

Yep, I’ve started my next big sweater project.  And since it’s knit in pieces I thought I’d do the sleeves first. Why?

a) To act as an extended gauge swatch- I wasn’t 100% certain it was right, so I figured I have nothing (except 4.25 inches of 2×2 rib) to lose.

b) So I could tell how much yarn they would use. I was hoping to make the sweater longer, but have a limited amount of yarn. Which was solved when I found 4 more balls to match -same dye lot and everything! Well, I found more than 4, but only bought this many 🙂

c) I’ve had a few issues with sleeves and motivation (anyone remember the endless rib sleeves of my Slinky Ribs?) so I thought this would get them out of the way.

So, in a week or so of knitting I’ve done both sleeves and about 10 inches of back.

And what am I knitting? Anyone able to guess?

By the way, the colour in the top pic is by far the more accurate. The label says ‘navy’ 🙂

    I’d tell, but I have the inside info on what it is, so that’s not fair 🙂 Looking good!

    I’m not sure which pattern it is. But it’s going to be beautiful!

    Central Park Hoodie??

    No, I didn’t cheat and look up your Ravelry (not sure if you even have it in there yet).

    Yep, it sure is. Chugging along nicely too, I’ll finish the back at knitting night tonight all going well 🙂
