Iron Horse doesn't allow me much time to stitch for myself. We have a great family vacation planned for the end of July and I really wanted to make some neat clothes to take to the hot climate of Florida. I wanted to make Windley, a great pattern from Berroco out of one of their new yarns, Lago. Lago is made of viscose and linen so I knwo it will be a cool garment and travel well.
As I casted on last Monday evening, my goal was to knit 4 inches a day until completed. Every day I am measuring my progress. I am thrilled to say at the moment Ihave surpassed my goal and have the back totally done and working on the front, which has a pleated end near the bust line so there are almost twice as many stitches on the front as the back. If I keep this up, I hope to have it done in another week! I will keep you posted. My color of choice is above and I am using one of Allie Loehlin's great yarn bowl to tame my yarn ball while knitting.
