catch up pics on the sweater

I finally got all the sweater parts grouped for a picture. This is where we are:

She'll be getting some knitting time this weekend and I am having a weekend. No work-work today (Saturday) and Monday is a holiday. I may go out and sell some trees at the farm today and watch some rain, hopefully.

Haven't decided whether to work on sleeve 2 or front 2 next. Targeting to do both over the next coupla' days.

Meanwhile, swallowtail has caught my fancy again. She has gotten knit time this week and is at 12 repeats. I have a decision point coming up at 14 repeats of the bud chart. I want her a bit larger than the pattern is written, and I'm thinking of doing more bud repeats. Stay tuned for my plans (and some math) at 14.

more later,

Your "family portrait" of the WIP components gives me an idea for my own blog. I am swatching for the charcoal sweater while waiting to try the fit on BittyBit's socks.

I think I will wind a ball, make a swatch, wind another ball, make another swatch, etc., until I find what I'm looking for.

I think that's Bono's cue...

Your sweater will be done in no time. Wow! Your shawl looks great, too.

Oh great Jeri, thanks for posting about the Swallowtail. I was just going to e-mail you to ask how many repeats you thought it needed. I'm trailing on your heels. Sweater looks great. Can see what you've been working on.

Hi Jeri , thanks for the comment you left about my swallowtail. I used Knitpicks Shadow (merino lace weight) for my shawl and I used 3.5mm needle. I still had quite a bit of yarn leftover for another repeat i guess.

I just found your comment after my comment on the Swallowtail Shawl KAL blog. I, too, am looking forward to seeing how many extra repeats you do. I finished mine according to the pattern because I only had 356 yards of yarn, but if I make this again I will definitely make it larger.

I'm with Angeluna and Mary Tess: how many repeats will you do on the Swallowtail?! I'd like to increase the size of my Swallowtail too, so I'm very curious...
