A Tale of Two Sweaters

I’m finally making some progress on the Secret Sweater. Even with all the chores I’ve been getting done around the house. We have a lot going on right now, so I decided to put most of my knitting away and just focus on two projects. Little does my husband know, this is actually my primary project right now.

I’m becoming fairly familiar with the pattern and it’s rhythm. The cable sections keep it from getting monotonous, while the plain knitting sections keep me moving along quickly. I’ve got about 5 to 6 inches before I separate the back and front and set up the arm holes. It’s exciting.

And this is my latest project, a Nod to Wonder Woman. I’m mashing up a few patterns for this one as well. I found one in a magazine for the stitch count and used the same knit 2, purl 2 ribbing. Then picked out the yarn over, slip slip knit from a stitch guide book to add a little character to the plain stripes.

This one is for me. I thought it might be fun to work on a sweater for each of us at the same time. I do have plans for a cable sweater, but I wanted something a bit effortless to make at the moment. It balances out the more complicated piece.
