Rogue #2 Done

I finished assembling and blocking Rogue #2 last weekend, or maybe Monday... I can't remember, as its been another whirlwind week. My sister in law for whom I knit it came up (with my dear brother) and spent the night last night in order to visit and retrieve it. I was so pleased to see that it fits perfectly and looks fabulous on her, as you can see below.

Project Specs:
Pattern: Rogue, Jenna Wilson; 43.5" size
Yarn: Cascade 220, Ruby Red 7 skeins
Needles: Denise #8 and #7
Notes: I still loved knitting this the 2nd time. Things I did differently this time around were using a purl turning row for the hem - I like it much better this way. I also used the hood as an excuse to practice cabling without a cabling needles. There is not much else to be said - its a great pattern with great results, and given the excuse I could easily knit it a 3rd time.

The only thing on the needles now are my Sockapaloooza socks, I've been waffling on what my next large-scale project should be. I tried starting a lace-weight shawl, but keep ripping because I don't have the mental stamina needed for that at the moment. I kind of don't feel like doing another sweater right now, so I'm still pondering what else to get going. I might just keep the socks as a solo project and use the "extra" time to spin more often.

Lovely. Inspiring. If it wasn't so late, I'd come up with something more creative to say.

Ooh, I love it in that color. Is there anything more satisfying that a purl turning row? I think not.

It does look great. And I'd love a rogue but don't have time to knit one. Is that enough of an excuse for you to knit a third???
Heh heh.

I just love that sweater. I need to find time to knit it. Socks are a nice transition project. Your next big project will find you when you're ready. And you can't complain about more spinning time.

Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous. You can't look at that color and not feel happy. Your sister-in-law is lucky -- I hope my SILs don't see your site; I certainly have never knit them anything so nice!
