This Afternoon I finished my saddles for the FLAK project. I'm quite please with the result. I was a bit worried that the cables wouldn't show as well on the DK weight yarn. But I think they will be just fine. For my sweater I'm planning on making mine a bit big. I really didn't want a fitted sweater. Plus I plan on loosing another 30 pounds so by the time this sweater is finished It should be a very loose fitting one.
I have also planned to join the Knitting Olympics. This has been the buzz on several email list. The whole idea is a very simple one. I am to pick a project that has some challenge to it. I will then cast on during the opening ceremonies of the 2006 Olympics in Torino Italy. I will then have to complete my project before or at the closing ceremonies. For my Project I plan to knit a modular sweater that was featured in vogue Knitting Spring/Summer 2004. I already have the yarn and am ready to go. I will be using some Blue Sky Alpaca/Silk that I have in my stash, its light blue shade.
