NeenerKnits' 28Thirty Sweater

Cast on today another WIP (Work In Progress): a sweater called 28Thirty. I saw a gal at REI and noticed her sweater right away and it was her very first sweater! She did such a great job too! She told me what pattern it was so I paid $6 on Zephyrstyles.com to download it. I am doing it in this loden green since it was a Superwash 220 wool on sale today and they had 5 skeins of it. Pattern is knit from the top of the neck on down and has some interesting detail in it. It is cropped, but alot of people doing it are lengthening it. And some are varying the sleeves, etc. I am seeing all this on Ravelry.com. Here's a shot of 28Thirty so far. Starting from the neck and knitting downward, this is with the first buttonhole showing on the left. I will have to pause my work until I can find a 32" or longer size 8 circular needle (harder to find) since soon I will need to have to increase to 276 stitches on the needle as I knit the front.

I am still working on the Everyday Cardigan and have finished the back of it, and now have started on the right front. It looks kinda the same as my previous pics, so I won't post a new pic on that yet!

wow! I'm impressed! Two sweaters at once! Have you ever done socks??? I want to learn but am too intimidated!

P.S. I hope the pattern of the washcloth doesn't change when you wash it. I made the washcloths out of Sugar 'n Cream which is all cotton. So hopefully you can just toss that bad boy right into the washer! ;-)

I haven't done socks yet, but my Mom is getting into them. i did get a new book at Michael's with my coupon called 2-at-a-time- socks doing them at the same time on a circular. But that's for later...
Thanks for the reply on the washcloths! It should stay nice as cotton.

how FUN, socks!!!! each winter I have two pairs of knit socks that I wear religiously...one pair has holes in the heel (they were store-bought) from so much wear. I love wearing them...nothing like sticking your feet on the fireplace hearth with those socks on, then walking around and feeling the buuuurn!
