A promise broken…

Did I foolishly promise pictures of past knitting adventures? I’m sorry, none today…
Instead I’ll talk a little about my current WIP – Norah Gaughan’s wonderful Eastlake Sweater.

Eastlake sweater by Norah Gaughan – WIP

I try to squeeze in a few rounds of knitting it whenever the normal madness of life and the special madness of swatching, submitting and sample knitting leaves time.
This sweater is wonderful! A great design – I love the neckline, the sleeve-length and of course the inset lace motif. Knitting it is a pleasure, especially since I modified it for knitting in the round. No pesky purl rows involved.
What’s not so wonderful is a plethora of inconsistencies popping up all over the pattern. Some of them are addressed in the errata, but a few still crop up. For example it has you decrease after the initial ribbing across a purled row for the back but a row of ribbing for the front.
Anyways, if you have a little experience you’ll be able to recognise and solve those problems fairly easy and the finished result is definitely worth a little trouble.

New promise: I’ll try to keep this blog bilingual from now. At least I’ll ad a short summary of sorts in my native language. Not always a word by word translation, but at least the gist of my ramblings in English above… kick me if I forget too often.

Eigentlich hatte ich ja versprochen, Bilder von einigen FO meiner Anfangszeit als Strickerin hochzuladen… statt dessen gibt es jetzt ein paar Sätze zu meinem derzeitigen WIP (Work in progress = derzeit auf den Nadeln), dem wundervollen Eastlake Sweater von Norah Gaughan.
Ich habe das Muster so modifiziert, dass ich es bis zu den Armlöchern in der Runde stricken kann (ich hasse linke Maschen) und versuche, wann immer mir das Leben an sich und das Designen im Besonderen die Zeit lassen, ein paar Runden einzuschieben.
Wer den Pullover nachstricken will: Lest auf jeden Fall die Errata und am Besten auch die Projektnotizen auf Ravelry – in dem Muster sind jede Menge Fehler!
Das schöne Endergebnis ist die Mühe aber allemal Wert…
