Carpino Summer Sweater Knit Along
Our Summer Sweater Knit Along is underway! You still have plenty of time to cast on! I chose to knit Carpino by Carole Feller which is part of Brooklyn Tweeds Wool People Vol. 6. It is a originally a three quarter sleeved sweater knit in fingering weight yarn. I am going to make it a short sleeved sweater knit in Nice and Knits Sock yarn. (Yes! Sock yarn. We will have some available soon and will make an announcement with a shop update in the near future!) Of course being a Carole Feller pattern - it's great! I am really enjoying the lace pattern which is so easy to keep track of rows and I immediately know when there is an error which is a real bonus with lace knitting. I have not knit anything on a size 4 needle in a long time, but there is such a rewarding feeling in those tiny beautiful stitches. I woke up at 2 am and couldn't sleep last night so I knit for a few hours in the early morning, I was able to make a lot of progress - annnnd I did cheat and cast on a few days early. I know I'm bad.
