On the Road Again….

Body of EZ October Project: Open-Collared Pullover

Have I mentioned that I almost exclusively knit while traveling?

I knit in the car every day during my commute to work, on my weekend travels, and of course while flying.

So in my world small portable projects rule.
This weekend I made the 5 hour trip to Rhinbeck for the NYS Sheep & Wool festival. I knit the entire way even through the pitch dark. I made the body of  open collared pullover on trip out. Then made the sleeves on the car ride back.

I’ve finally decided to make the EZ Knitter’s Almanac October project for a baby boy.

  • Yarn: Big Mexiko Color
  • Needles: Size 5
  • Gauge:  6 sts / inch
  • This EZ project is sized for an adult so I’ve had 2 make a lot of measurements &  calculations.  I’m just keeping my fingers crossed that this will fit someone someday.

    I started the project with an I-Cord border garter stitch band. Joined the band and then knit up to the underarms.
    Now I’m ready to join the sleeves to the body.

    I did not dare do this in the dark!
