WIP: Vivien Pullover (Christmas Sweater)

My progress on this sweater has been terribly slow. I haven’t been home much these past weeks. And since this is my “at-home” project that has slowed the progress of this sweater.

So, let’s talk about the project. I really like how it is turning out so far and I get super excited every time I see more of the design coming through. It may just be me but, I adore looking at the back of stranded color work. It is so pretty to me.

I am very anxious to add the green into the mix and then the red. Then, I will be able to get a real look at the design.

I noticed that the other ladies who are participating in this Christmas Sweater Challenge have a timeline. I definitely need to incorporate some deadlines for myself because otherwise this will get put on the back burner. Then, I will look up and 2015 will be here with an unfinished sweater.

So, here goes…

  • June – Have front of sweater complete
  • July – Have back of sweater complete
  • August – Finish a sleeve
  • September – Finish a sleeve
  • October – Block and seam

Notice I gave myself a free month. This gives me room to have a plan B in motion just in case I need the extra time.


Future Projects: Vivien Sweater and Miette Cardigan

So, it is busy around these parts but, I am trying to get this post up because it has been awhile. I am finishing up my Marion cardigan so, of course I am thinking about my next project.

I will be joining Andi’s Christmas sweater project and the pattern I will be doing is Vivien. I will mainly work on this project at home because of the colorwork. I don’t think this is a good on-the- go project.

My project for my knitting bag (on-the-go) will be Miette. I put off knitting this for far too long so, I look forward to starting it soon.
