I've been making progress on Goodale. I'm adding increases to the front sections so that the sweater will not be as open. I'm also making it a bit lon ger and adding some side shaping. Progress has been slow because I've been sidetracked with knitting this textured cardigan by Rebecca Taylor from Vogue Knitting Fall 2010.
I was fascinated with this pattern the moment I saw it in the magazine's online preview. I love the texture and the unique construction. What's interesting to me is that I'm the one and only person on ravelry who is knitting this garment, and there are only 11 others who have queued it up. I wonder why so few other knitters find it as fascinating as I do.
This is really a simple knit because you just knit a 6 ft x 18" rectangle and sew it up. It's just like knitting a scarf for a very large person. I have to admit that it's getting a bit monotonous, especially since there are a lot of P3tog stitches in the pattern, but I've got about 4 ft. done, so onward I go!
