WiP Wednesday

I had a few chunks of time over the last week, and the Noro sweater is thisclose to finished.

It needs a bit of end-weaving and a collar, then it’s finished. I’m a bit concerned about the collar flipping out and can’t decide how to tackle that project. The other cuffs on this sweater are 8 rows of 2x2 ribbing. Any suggestions?

In other news, I made some time for weaving over the last week. Hooray!

You can see the fabric rolled onto the front beam. It’s coming along nicely, and I keep telling myself that the fabric will even out when the blanket gets its bath. I hope I’m right!

It’s hard to tell how much fabric has been woven from that front-beam shot, but you can really see the progress when you look at the back beam

Only half of the back (sectional) beam is still holding warp. The end is in sight!

And, because tomorrow is one of my favorite holidays, I will share one of the Best Thanksgiving TV episodes ever. It’s just short of seven minutes, but worth every second. Enjoy, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Yay for an almost finished sweater! Are you going down a needle size (or two) for the ribbing? I wonder if going down yet another size for the last row might help the collar stay put.

Happy Thanksgiving!

thanks for that, Amy!

my word verification is "swdetedr" -- sounds like something I knit one time that didn't work out too well...
