|Humulus in HipStrings Buoy DK in Lead (MC) and Spring (CC)|
I split the sleeves from the body on Tuesday night and added about two inches of body last night. The body of this sweater couldn't be easier -- just knit until it's the specified length. I've joined in a second skein of the gray now that the yoke is finished, so the only thing I have to pay attention to is alternating skeins at the beginning of each round.
The fabric I'm getting with this Buoy DK is interesting. Though it's classified as a DK, I find it to be a light DK/heavy sportweight, and in this sweater I'm knitting it at a DK to worsted gauge. So the fabric with a single strand of yarn is on the light side. I'm sure the yarn will bloom a bit when it's washed, but it seems that, in spite of the stranding, this is going to be a lightweight sweater when it's done -- and provided we don't jump right from winter to summer weather, I might just be able to wear it when it's finished!
