I will stay on you to make that sweater. A friend and I were to start a sweater together...I knit mine in about a week, and she JUST started swatching for it (two, make that three months after I finished mine). I've been on her to get it done, and I will be happy to do the same for you :). I love those socks!! The colors are gorgeous. I almost bought roving in (about) the same colors yesterday...looking at your socks I am wishing I had bought the roving.


You're right, Marina *is* crazy. And yet, you know she'll get them all made and they'll be beautiful.

Sweaters are also not my strong suit - the only one that *really* fits well is my Knitting Olympics sweater.


Ooh, I really need to make myself a new sweater also! Thank goodness for fleece, in the meantime.

I have one (started about a year ago) with the body 3/4 done, needing sleeves. Now, THAT, I might be able to finish by fall, along with yours that you start now.


Aww, don't do that! Now, I'm feeling the pressure to knit something else ;-)

OK, I'll try to squeeze in a pair of socks before Christmas but it has to be DK or heavier!


We'll have to figure out a way to do a conference call S&B or something. You can nag me to knit something (anything - I just need to get back into regular progress) and I'll nag (errr I mean gently remind) you about your sweater. I got to see the yarn choice process and I was fascinated. I'll be thrilled to follow your progress on the sweater.


I love the new sock, especially the "back" pattern - I agree a whole sock in that pattern would be cool too!

I don't do a whole lot of knitting for me so I try to make my yearly World Wide Knit In Public Day something for me! WWKIP Day is June 9th this year, why don't you make a commitment to start a sweater for you on WWKIP with me too?

OK, your feet are officially to the fire--which should make knitting socks a worthless activity until your new sweater is done. I'll send you my "how to design a sweater" matrix to get you started!


I love the soft colors of that yarn. Beautiful sock!


I heartily applaud and commend your commitment to yourself Now, to pick the yarn and pattern! Do you have something in mind?

You must knit a seamless sweater using Elizabeth Zimmerman's percentage system then! It will fit you perfectly as you can use the measurements taken from your favorite fleece. :D

Lovely colors on that sock.
