I'm Baaack! (Almost)

Dragonfly pullover 
I'm just about ready to start the shoulder shaping on the back piece of my Relax pullover!  One thing about knitting an oversized, boxy pullover (the kind I like to wear) is that you have to knit oversized, boxy pieces.  Those take a while.  On the other hand, I will have row numbers for shaping and everything I'll need to know by the time I start the front, so it should go faster.  (I've gone ahead and made notes in the pattern with Imperial measurements.)  I also know the sleeves will probably take longer to pick up stitches than they will to knit because they're fairly fitted.

All this to say, I think my amusement with the colorway is helping because it keeps me interested as I knit miles of stockinette stitch.  While I'm sure I would wear one of these in a solid color, I'm not sure how easy it would be to knit.  I'd have to plan my Netflix very carefully.

Just a quick thank you for introducing me to the Moneta dress pattern. I used it for "Grandma's Sewing Camp" & with only a couple of modifications for the smallest granddaughter (about a child's 10/12), the girls made really cute and wearble dresses from it.
