2013 ist das Jahr des Klamottenstricks

Hab ich behauptet, dass ich Kleinstricker bin? Kann gar nicht sein - dieses Jahr sind auf alle Fälle ziemlich viele Oberteile fertig geworden - wie z.B. dieser "Vitamin D", ein Raglan-von-oben, aus Opal Van Gogh Sternennacht (die Passe) und Drops Fabel (der Rest). Ich habe mich nur bis nach der Ärmelabtrennung an die Anleitung gehalten, dann gerade runtergestrickt, denn ich denke, eine verschließbare Jacke werde ich mehr tragen.
Bin aber mit dem Ergebnis sehr zufrieden - könnte sogar sein, dass ich noch einen dritten Vitamin stricken werde...

Hm - seems it grew quite a bit in washing- but should be ok, it is more on the roomy side - which explains why I had to use a bit of the grey yarn for the sleeves.

Nov. 23d
Finished second sleeve - just have to weave in ends, sew on buttons and block…

Nov. 20th
Finished first sleeve - had to add a tiny bit of grey as I will probably not have enough yarn otherwise… Picked up 80 stitches for sleeve, did 15 rows plain, then decreased 2 stitches each every 8th row, down to 60 stitches.

Oct 27th
Adding waist striping with yoke yarn.

Oct 20th
Separating Sleeves from the body

Oct. 12th
Cast on again, used the Opal van Gogh for the yoke as planned. Fabric is a little tighter than with the forst one, probably as it is not containing cotton. Like it so far.

There is a Christmas Sweater KAL going on in the Deutscher Stricktreff Group, and I will participate with my second Vitamin D (yeah, we have quite a wiiide definition of what a Christmas Sweater can be…)
When knitting the first (which I like a lot), I loved the yoke construction and had the idea to knit the top part up to the Separation of sleeves with a self-patterning sockyarn I have in stash, combined with blue sockyarn I also have in stash and do not want to use for socks.
I am also thinking about leaving out the short rows and just knit an “ordinary” Cardigan from the sleeves down- but we will see.
First, I have to complete my Karisma-Senfjanker, I hope to be able to start this by middle of October.
Oh, and to prove that the Sweater was completed in time, I will have to post a photo in front of the Christmas tree/ decoration…
