The Setesdal is finished.

I have had a lot of stuff happen in my family this past two months.  But things are settling down again and I'm knitting again.  I finished the black and white Setesdal-style sweater.

It was warm enough out on our deck to sit out here yesterday. This is where I did the picking up of stitches for the placket. The light here was great.  Then I knitted the placket and started on the collar. I finished up weaving in the ends and tacking down the inner facings today and wore the sweater to my yarn shop.  I prefer taking pictures outside, so took this when I got home again.09-Finishied

And I have started a new one.  This one is a kit by KnitPicks. I bought it because the price was right and I liked the sweater. So far I have one cuff and half the sleeve done.  Doing these one after another is helping me hone my skills and remember the things I did wrong the last time. 

Here is the cuff and sleeve so far. Well, actually it's a little longer than this, as I took this yesterday morning.


That's it for this time.
