some interesting conversation...

There's some interesting conversation going on over on the Knitter's Review Forum about the Hourglass sweater.

Here's the path and the link.

R2 Hourglass Sweater by Illanna

Hi Hourglassers!

I am working on my hourglass with Rowan R2 Paper Yarn:

Last night I finished the body up to the sleeves:

and I started on the first sleeve (I made my stitch markers):

It's hard to find the 12" circular needles for the sleeves; I got mine at my LYS. They are made by Clover and they are plastic. They are nice to work with, because they are kind of rubbery, and they were only $4.75.

I changed the pattern a little by doing ribbing on the edges instead of the turning round. That way, there will be even less finishing at the end.

I also took a close-up of the "weirdness" when I put the 10 stitches on the stitch holders on either side:

I want to see others' progress too! Happy Hourglassing!
