Out Of The Penalty Box

When Elizabeth Zimmermann's 50th Anniversary Sweater gave me grief over the 'raising-of-the-back-neck' short rows, it was suggested by Laurie M of Issues With Knitting to put it in a time out.

Timing was perfect because I had committed to knitting a marathon of scarves and had no knitting time for an un-cooperative, fair isle sweater.

But the scarves are done - I believe I forgot to showcase this one -
the weather has cooled and I'm anxious to see if my Anniversary Cardi er rather I -have learned my knitting lesson.

Steek not yet cut, ends not yet tied in, here is my version of Elizabeth's fabulous sweater. It is LOVELY. It FITS. With short rows completed in the final contrast colour it is now fully co-operative and ready for steeking and i-cord bands.

Back to EZ knitting.

great sweater - I have that pattern, so it's always nice to see one done in "real life"

I really like that scarf and the sweater is beautiful. You will get lots of use out of it. Don't give it away too soon ☺

The sweater is lovely. I can't wait to see the finished object. And I love the hockey reference :)
