The Norwegian Sweater ie Cully’s Sweater

It’s like night and day around here.

All fall we were a little tense gearing up for Laura’s surgery – and now that she’s home I’ve been giddy with happiness.

My family has so much to be thankful for… my sister is baking a ton of pies and is planning on delivery them to the Riley ICU nurses Thanksgiving Day. Isn’t that sweet? I’m heading over this morning to help with some of the baking…

Meanwhile, I’ve been knitting away on the next project.

I really wanted to make this sweater for my husband. However, I have been spending quite a bit of money on this Knitting Zimmermann project. So in the view of economy, I’m making it for Baby John.

The Yarn: Rowan Pure Wool DK – at first I was happy with my choice. However, when it has come to steeking I used my favorite – the crochet steek – and I regretted this yarn choice. It started to unravel! So I quickly got out a needle and thread.

The lesson – if you want to crochet steek : USE STICKY WOOL!

Needles: US #5 – pretty happy with the gauge and the final outcome.

I’ll keep you posted….
