Moving Along

Last night I sat in my favorite chair and knitted most of the second skein of yarn on the Goat Herder Pullover.

I forgot to identify the color of the Brooklyn Tweed Shelter that I’m using this time– it’s called Wool Socks, which doesn’t mean anything to me. I wonder whose wool socks are this color?

For those of you wondering, I decided to knit the body from the bottom up because it’s easier (for me) to work the armhole and neck shaping while decreasing in a stitch pattern than while increasing, which is what has to be done when working from the top down.

But, the sweater will be seamless — I plan to bind off the shoulders together, then pick up stitches around the armholes and work the sleeves down to the cuffs, as outlined in The Knitter’s Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters.
