Unraveled Wednesday.

No unraveling to share this week *knocks on wood*! With Bodie finished, all of my sweater attention is going to Footprints. and that kind of attention brings progress. This morning I finished the body 
and started the first sleeve. Heidi has designed this one with a few retro details that I love - the mock turtleneck (which is kind of hard to see in my photo - it's 5" of ribbing that gets folded in half to the inside and stitched down) and trim body shaping (we decreased about 2" from the bust to the hem). The fit is perfect!  I'm planning 3/4 sleeves - a nod to the linen/silk fiber content for a transitional piece and maybe running short on yarn - and after a couple of hours knitting with friends this afternoon, that first sleeve is almost 1/3 done. 

Parallelogram Scarf is not nearly so far along. and good thing it's an entertaining knit because it's also a very ... slow ... knit. 
One of my favorite features is that the color changes happen on the 4th stitch. So the chain of color changes isn't at the edge. Cool, huh?

My reading is even more varied than the knitting.
That top one is on audio. I started it yesterday and still have about seven hours to go but it's delightful. The other three are all real books, which means slow for me. But I'm enjoying them all - for very different reasons. More to come once I finish them.

So now back to knitting. and listening. 

and looking forward to reading about what you're unraveling over at Kat's.

Footprints looks like another winner, Mary. I've never been a real fan of mock turtlenecks (on me), but that looks just great on you! The Parallelogram looks like an entertaining knit -- I love color-changing. It seems to make projects move faster for me. Hope it works that way for you, too!
(How's that Courtney Carver book? I've followed her on Instagram and her blog for years. Haven't picked up the book yet, though.)

That sweater is perfect for you! And, as I said on IG, the color is stunning! And, your books always make my TBR list much longer!

Another wonderful sweater for you - you must have awesome closet space for storing so many beautiful handknits!

Another beautiful sweater, Mary! I'm in love with the color -- and I'm sure there is a knitting term for that lovely soft, fuzziness it has. And I love the start you've made on Parallelogram, too! I think I will be adding a few books to my reading list. : )

That sweater is going to be PERFECT with 3/4 sleeves! It looks amazing so far.

Footprints looks fabulous! And soft!! Love the colors for your Parallelogram - sounds as if that one is pretty much slow going for everyone. I did read "Readers of the Broken Wheel" and thought it was just ok - it dragged a bit for me. Your other book choices look really interesting to me - will look forward to your reviews.

Footprints was made for you! Parallelogram looks fun! Courtney Carver had an event and books signing here in SLC, but I didn't get there. I didn't realize she was a local until the newspaper did an article about her journey. I loved True North.

I love the sweater and love the idea of the folded mock. It's a beautiful color! I made the Hourglass Sweater from Last Minute...years ago and loved, loved the folded neck and hem.

I think Footprints will definitely be going into my queue. I have a work road trip coming up so I need to get some travel knitting figure out.
