Two Ample Sweaters

Yarn and first bit of back panel for the Sandy cardigan from
Big Girl Knits.

Back of the sweater that may not have to die.

I hope to adapt the methodology of Sandy to re-fit the colorwork sweater, begun oh so many pounds ago, using shaped side panels.

Stitches Midwest . . .

. . . has ended. The highlights of this year were the Ample Knitters' luncheon on Saturday, organized by Lynn from Wilmette, and the classes. Thanks to all the beautiful women who shared lunch, conversation, and white elephants, and to the generous folks who donted door prizes. Thanks also to the dedicated and talented instructors who braved airport hell to get here and back.

Joan Schrouder, you really are the thinking knitter's dream come true.

I made only one yarn purchase: a pound of hand-painted merino destined to be the center panels of the Sandy Cardigan from Big Girl Knits. There will someday be photos.
