Earthbound Right Front

I started knitting on my new Diane Edwards sweater. Oh how much fun it is! I saw Dianes book of sweaters at SAFF and snatched it up. I pored over that book it is just full of ideas. I settled on the sweater I wanted; I gauged and I swatched. I decided that I did not want to follow a chart while stranding and purling, so I taught myself how to knit from left to right, while stranding with both hands. What a thrill that was! No more purling for me, baby! I dont remember the last time I was this excited about my knitting! And so here are the results!
I just finished the first quadrant and am pondering how to eliminate 6 rows from the back and of course what colors to use!!!!! I could kick myself for using the same background color for the first band as for the second, but oh well. I am increasing speed in my left-handed knitting and I figured out how to carry the alternate color along the outside when purling. That was fun. I am absolutely thrilled!!! I just hope I dont experience the * dreaded*gauge*shift as I get happier and happier!

Situated on a hill overlooking the Haw River, Three Waters Farm looks out over a mixed terrain of fields, woods, and water in the piedmont of North Carolina. We moved here in 1989 with the intent to raise our family on a working homestead. Initially we produced a mix of organic vegetables, cut flowers, goat cheese, and baked goods at the Carrboro Farmers' Market.
Since 1997, we have focused on making products from our sheep's wool and our goat's milk. We produce a variety of hand-painted yarns, and spinning fibers, and from our goat's milk, we make Goat's Milk True-soap, using our own special recipe.
