To the exclusion of all else knitty, I have been working exclusively on Rosedale. So what if my sister’s birthday was last Tuesday and her unfinished scarf is sitting in the bottom of my knitting bag. So what if my husband’s overcoat looks naked without the promised birthday scarf. So what if I lost interest in my daughter’s acid green boa scarf. I am having a love affair with Rosedale in the Garden of Noro Silk.
I am so enamoured with Silk Garden and Rosedale does such a wonderful job of showing off the color changes. Here’s a photo of my progress.
And here’s a close-up of the beginning of the intarsia rectangle. Look mom, I’m doing intarsia!
Because I didn’t have any size 6 double points on hand, I ended up casting on for the body of the sweater first; however, I’ll have to stop at the yoke because you can’t go on until you have a sleeve to insert. Hopefully, by the time the double points arrive in the mail, I’ll be ready to start on the sleeves.
