New deadline for sizequeen needle project...

OK, I think I freaked some guys out with the idea of designing and knitting a superbulky sweater in 6 weeks. So.... Howabout the by the beginning of May. There might just be a night cold enough in those northern climes to wear a sweater jacket.

Incidentally I found in my stash a huge bag of yarn called Griffolk that is very lofty. I'm knitting it either trebled or quadrupled on 15's. 2 st/in. I did swatches to test various patterns, and by the time I had was done (2 hours or so) I realized I had a panel the size of one front on a cardigan. It does REALLY go fast.

C'mon guys! Pull up your big-guy britches and whip out your big sticks. Let's make some manly sweaters!

well, we will see how fast

well, we will see how fast it goes...I have delicate little hands...not so nimble with sizequeen needles...But I am willing to work those great big hunks of wood to get just the right speed for a clean finish.

May is definitely more reasonable with my current schedule!

Petite flower of lovliness....lol!! I have been called many things in my life, but never petite...flower or lovely....

Lovliness....I think that's more your area of expertise...gentleman that you are.

I'm just a pig in a nice sweater.
