Hi All,  Lemmy and I are starting the Dogwood Blossoms sweater.  Wish us luck (and good eyesight!)  We'd love others working on this sweater to join us! 

It's kind of hard to see which colors are on the charts.  The dark ones look alike (at least on the blue kit).  There is a close up photo of the sweater in the instructions that is a little clearer.  I think the first colors used after the cuff are Bark and Silver.

I'm near sighted and wear progressive lenses.  I've found I have a much easier time knitting (esp fine gauge) when I wear a pair of old glasses.  The distance prescription is lower and I can see up close MUCH more easily.  Guess I need stronger progressives, but this works for free!

Looks good!

No it looks like this:

This is really going to be a gorgeous sweater.  :o)

 

That's what I think. I'm on the second sleeve now.

Peggy, Your Dogwood Sweater is coming along so lovely. The colors are fantastic.

Thanks! I'm temporarily off the rails, though. The sweater is low-priority, so I have to get my baby knitting and quilting done first!

I started my Dogwood Blossoms sweater one year and one month ago and tonight it is blocking. It is not perfect and I did "my own thing" with setting in the sleeves. I might decide to change them but I will post some pictures first to see what  you think. I also knit socks, shawls and baby blankets over the year, but it is great to get this project finished. All I need to do now is pick out buttons.

Congratulations.

Can't wait to see! I have about 2" of the body done. Want to see yours!

Here is my finished Dogwood Blossoms sweater.

GOOD WORK! Impressive! Beautiful! I can't wait to finish mine!

Janet, that is fabulous!
