Love it, love it, love it!

Jay! I've finished the body now and I love to knit this one! I have a project I sort of have to finish, but this one is much more fun! So, the sleeves and the buttonbands are left, but I already know that this will be a winner, and make me one too wearing it!

I'm baaaaack

My second Forecast is for my mother, who saw and admired mine so much that she enquired as to knitting time and difficulty in a tentative manner. I saw this as a hint that she'd like her own - quite rightly, as it turned out.

So I'm back, and already enjoying the pattern even more than last time. It helps that Mum is also smaller than me, so it's an even quicker knit. And after two lovely but time-consuming 4-ply-on-3mm-needle knits, I'm ready for swift progress.

New Participant: VivaPia

Hi everyone!
Summer's coming to it's end here in Sweden, so I've started to knit autumn-wear: Forecast! I'm using 2-threaded wool and alpaca. I've reached the lower body so far and am hoping for a rapid progress! :D

And I'm Done!

YAY! Please excuse my goofy looking photo. This only took about two weeks and I loved the whole no seaming thing. I found some buttons which I think match pretty damn well. I think I'm gonna be wearing this a lot. It still needs a good blocking as it's rolling in places and I wouldn't mind getting a little extra length in the body and arms. More info on my blog

We have arm

Here's another progress shot. I'm getting close now, only one more arm and the button bands to go. I've gotta start looking for some buttons. To answer dlittlegarden's question the colourway for the yarn is #7613 which is a red wine colour. It's a bit darker than in the photos. I have to admit I was a little unimpressed with the colour and the random flecks of blue, green, yellow and white in the tweed but now that it's almost finished I'm really liking the colour. The tweed blends really well. Hopefully next post I'll be finished.
