Striping On!

I hope you aren't bored of stripes yet around here!  At least these stripes will be in eleven different colors instead of just two.  Hopefully that will be somewhat amusing to you.  It amuses me, but then it doesn't take much to amuse me.

I've done the first little stripe and started the first wide stripe (there are narrow stripes and wide stripes on the body, and the sleeves get completely crazy).  It's fun to watch the colors begin to stack up and even though this is an oversized sweater knit in sport weight yarn (really yummy sport weight yarn), it seems to go fast because I'm watching the stripes build up.  Also, now that I'm past the ribbing and I'm doing stockinette, I can just knit without paying much attention to it.  TV knitting anyone?

Did I mention how much I love this yarn?  I'm thinking that I'd like to use it again sometime.  This lighter weight (she also has a worsted weight version of all the yarns) would make a lovely, wearable sweater for North Texas, and the fact that it's a 3 ply means textural stitch patterns and cables would really shine.

I'll be spending the weekend striping on this sweater, although I do plan to have Mickael try on his black sock (remember, from before Camp Loopy started this Summer?)  I know I'm close to starting the first toe, I'm just not sure how close.  I hope you have a great weekend!  Logan is going to get some good naps (he's already started) to recover from waking up before the sun to run.  If you're in the USA, Happy Labor Day!  Stay safe and I'll catch you Tuesday!

Hey Melanie
I was checking this lovely sweater out on ravelry last night when I noticed that you were knitting it up. It looks wonderful. I think that I'm going to have to buy myself a kit for the launch of my Fall knitting. Are there like a million ends to weave in and how are you managing them in the round all on one side?
