slow Forecast

slow Forecast, originally uploaded by the pig wot flies.

I worked on this a bit at the weekend too, when I decided I needed a break from 4ply yarn and fine needles. Forecast is FINALLY past the armholes and into the body. It should be a little quicker from here on in, especially now I'm using Cmeknit's no-turn bobble technique. It's quicker (although I still have to turn my work once because I'm knitting the bobbles from the wrong side after switching from purled garter stitch to knit garter stitch) and seems to produce a neater bobble.

I like the look of the yarn you're using & will be looking forward to seeing it when it's finished! I'm debating with myself over whether or not to knit this pattern - I saw a stunning version in yellow but who can really pull off yellow?

I've been thinking of forecasting too. I just need to find the right yarn. I can't find an aran weight I like that's not 100% wool. I think Cashmerio'd just pill crazy and be expensive. I can't afford silk! Mmmm I might go 100% plastic
