Update On My Knitting February 25, 2017

img_2471   I am knitting a brown sweater, sort of making it up as I go along.  I like the color and the wool – Rauma Strikkegarn (www.raumaull.no) – Norwegian of course.  I have knit the front and the back and both sleeves.  Now i’m in the process of joining the 2nd sleeve to the body of the sweater.  This is somewhat difficult to make a smooth seam.  Next will be to complete the upper part of the sweater.  I’m thinking of doing a simple pattern.

img_2470   this is a sweater which I knit from the top down following instructions in an old knitting book published in Norway in 1975.  The simple design using the contrasting colors is mine.
