Kniting knitting knitting

This will be a boring post.  I've been doing nothing but knitting lately.  Remember this?


Well that has turned into this.


Can you tell what it is?  It's a top down turtleneck sweater, turtleneck up at the top, sleeves on either side waiting to be knitted, body in progress.  It's the Lightweight Pullover sweater by Knitbot.  I'm knitting it in Verdant Gryphon Bugga in American Rubyspot.

I did do another Fussy Cut Friday star too.


This time I used a fabric from the Michael Miller blue and white collection.

Here are a couple of pictures of Mia to liven things up.

Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi.  I hope everyone has a great week.

I am in awe that you can knit such a beautiful sweater!

Brigitte said...

Ha, that's what you call a boring post? No, it isn't, it's very interesting to see that sweater grow, and very interesting to see that you started it on the top and are knitting it downwards. And you have another star finished. I'm looking forward to seeing them all together.

Erica said...

This is the perfect weather for knitting!
I love the rich colors in your sweater!
I have a top-down cardigan wip around somewhere that I need to finish. I always have problems finding buttons though.
Stay warm!

Lovely fabric with the swans and gorgeous knitting too. Mia is so cuddly, Poppy and Rosa say hello.

Jackie said...

Mia always looks on the small side to me. The photo of her taken from the rear makes her looks huge (and her head so small). Just goes to show you butt shots don't flatter any living creature!

You know I LOVE your sweater!

Miss Pants said...

Very impressed with your knitting! I can crochet...and mostly just blankets. :-P

Solstitches said...

Your fussy cut stars are amazing.
I'm keen to know the layout of these stars?

That's a gorgeous yarn. Great knitting, and sewing - well done.

woolwoman said...

You are making awesome progress on your pullover. I adore that colorway and while I have several skeins of Bugga stashed - nothing has been "buggaworthy" as yet. I'm curious where you found sweater quantities of bugga? Love your swan block - how gorgeous ! enjoyed visiting your non-boring blog - Mel

Melanie said...

Whattttttttttttttttt is this pattern? I don't remember seeing this before and I LOVE it. I wore something like that yesterday, only in black. Very nice!

Cute cat. Interesting post. Good luck with your knitting.

Thank you. Love love, Andrew. Bye.

Loraine said...

Your knitting is just amazing. That is going to be a fabulous sweater in the perfect color!
Great job on your fussy cut star too. I've been working on my other paper pieced project, but it's not moving as fast as I would like! Ugg.
Have a great day dear friend!

Suzanne said...

Lovely coloured yarn. I have caught the crochet bug lately and have been spending more time on that than my stitching.
