Happy St Patricks Day!

on the 4th of July!

That's right, nice hot July weather and instead of working on my latest Hey Teach, I've been plugging away on St. Patrick for Matt. I'm using Beaverslide worsted in a lovely taupish brown color (I've lost the label, so I have no idea what the color is called).

I started this last year, but after a two repeats, I decided to go up a size. Matt likes slim fitting sweaters, but I think this one needs some ease for the more traditional fitting aran.

While this isn't knitting up as fast as his Staghorn did, and I am not able to memorize the cables, I am happy with the progress. At some point, I do think I'm going to have to figure out how to knit to season! It has gotten large enough that having it sit in my lap in this hot weather is uncomfortable! Yet I continue to knit on it instead of switching to a lighter weight project.

    Beautiful sweater, I heard a knitter say once that she placed her knitting on an old tv tray table to keep it off her lap in hot weather. Might work for you.

  2. It looks really really nice and really really warm!

    I like the cables!
