Progress on the Pieman and a new project

I finished the front of Pieman. I seriously hope this sweater isn’t too big. Now I’m reading others have done much smaller sizes for kids about E’s age.

I’m still happy with how this is turning out.

I’ve gotten yarn for my next project, even though I haven’t finished this one. Today I wound some of the yarn into balls:
Yarn for Slinky Ribs

This is for Wendy Bernard’s “Slinky Ribs” from Custom Knits.
Below is a collage that Scoutj made. The sweater is the one in the upper right. I got enough yarn to make long sleeves, so that’s my plan right now.

I think this will be a fun one to knit!

  1. I love that pattern by Wendy Bernard too. I believe it’s in my queue and I have the book on the shelf ready!! The sweater front looks fantastic. You are great with those cables!

    P.S. Nothing wrong with casting on for the new sweater a little ahead of time…. 🙂 he he

  2. Better too big than too small in my book!

    I want to start Slinky Ribs too, but am not sure I’ve found the perfect yarn yet.

  3. That’s the sweater that caught my eye to knit first too. Love your Pieman.
