Ribbing, it is.

Starting the 2013 September Sweater, at Polka Dot Cottage

Thank you for weighing in on the ever-important sweater yoke debate the other day. You helped me decide on the ribbing once and for all. I’ll save the leaf idea for something else. I do still want to do it in some form or other…

So now the project becomes: “September Sweater, 2013: Ribbed Edition.” (I almost went with “Ribbed for her Pleasure” but I didn’t think I could handle spending the next three seasons wearing a sweater with such a naughty name. Heh.)

I wasn’t going to start this until next month (being my September Sweater and all), but my current project (the Mod Floral Blanket) is in a holding pattern until some yarn I ordered arrives here, and I can’t possibly spend an evening with idle hands, now can I? Of course not.

This is my progress already. That’s one night in front of the TV, and a few minutes in the dentist office (surprise root canal – yippee!) worth of work. This ribbing is definitely a faster prospect than the original ruching was, and I think the look will be just different enough to make me happy. I’m loving the color, too. It’s a choice that makes me very happy. It will go so nicely with my favorite jeans. Plus, it’s not green, which already gives it one major difference from most of my other sweaters!

I’m really not done with shorts or sundresses yet, but I have to admit that seeing this sweater start to come together is getting me pretty excited for jeans, white tissue tees, Β and shiny black Danskos, with handknit sweaters on top…

  1. LOVE the color. It’s going to be fun to watch this come together (though it is going to make me want to start a new sweater & I have what, 3, 4 to finish).

    On a side note, I used to work for Capitol Records and they gave us all t-shirts with a picture of the Capitol Tower on them (http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Capitol_Records_Building_LA.jpg) with the slogan “ribbed for your pleasure.” That one took guts to wear.

    1. Ha! Yeah, not a shirt you’d want to wear to visit your grandmother πŸ˜‰

  2. Wow! That is going to be gorgeous! I love the color, too…so vibrant πŸ™‚

    1. I love it too… I can’t wait to finish πŸ™‚

  3. I love how this is looking. It looks really special.

    1. Thanks! I can’t believe I’m only a few rows away from separating for the sleeves! It’s going so quickly.
