We have lift off...


Kyoto back WIP
Originally uploaded by Disentangled.
Finally!!! I have started my Kyoto. Its fun working with the small needles and thin yarn. The stitches look like something you could buy in a store. I just hope I can keep my tension fairly even. Every so often you can see slightly loopy stitches, but I'm sure it will even out the more I knit with this.

I just know it will take quite some time to finish this - hopefully I will have it done in time to wear the sweater this fall. It will also be a good project for me to take to Australia since it won't be very bulky. I have also started thinking of other small projects to work on as a break from this one, including the Interweave Knits Triada scarf - which I think will use up the rest of my To Dye For sweater yarn.

Yay! The navy is really pretty! Which piece did you decide to start on?

Oops - I forgot to mention what it was - its the back :-)

Umm... rewind, please. When are you going to Australia, and why have you not invited your sister-in-law to sneak into your luggage?

Also, the stitches will even out over time and with wear.

Wow - was skimming through Rox's list (in search of my SP5) and found you - knitting kyoto! Yay. I have just started too. Will keep checking back to see your progress. :)
