WIP Wednesday

I am plodding along on Helena...
 
I've finished one sleeve (well, except for seaming it up). I'm somewhat terrified of seaming up the picot hem. But I think with a couple visits to TECHknitting, I can do it. With my nifty new camera, I was able to "warm up" the color so this is more true to the real yarn color than previous posts have been. <3 the new camera! Now I just need to conquer all its features....

I need to hurry up before the little girl is too big for the sweater!! I also want to be done so I can start Rose Red (or Silver Rose, in my case ;) for Jardin January!!

For more WIP Wednesday eye candy goodness, head over to Tami's Amis!

It's so cute! And so almost finished! Two very lovely traits in a sweater. Looking forward to seeing your Rose Red, I've been coveting one for ages. Must go plop it into the queue!

What a beautiful little sweater!! I tried to learn to knit once upon a time and it just didn't compute with me :(

Calophi said...

Wow, gorgeous color! I've been seeing this pattern around a lot lately. I guess it's popular!

Thanks for the heads up that techknitting has a tutorial for seaming a picot edge. :)

I don't know if she's deserving of it... I kinda just want to frame it :)

Hi Heather! Thanks for leaving me such a sweet comment on my blog yesterday--I'm happy to have found yours as well. What a gorgeous purply sweater--I just love it!!

Joysze said...

Love it!! The color is gorgeous.

You could always start a trend for 1-sleeved sweaters... kinda like those off one shoulder shirts? LOL!
