FO Friday: Artichoke French

It’s done. And I mean actually done, all ends have been woven in, all holes have been closed, all that remains is blocking and I can’t decide if I should do that now, or wait until I want to wear it. Knowing my luck in six months I will remember its not blocked three hours before I have to walk out the door.

I was finishing the neck line at geek knitting and I’m quite excited to add another finished sweater to my wardrobe.  The neck line is one of the parts that makes me know that blocking is a necessity as it’s hard to tell right now that its the same Artichoke French stitch going around the neck.

I added a few inches to the body as I worked and still have some yarn left over so that’s great.  I’m pondering making some Artichoke French fingerless mitts with the leftover yarn, to look like my sleeves.

If you couldn’t guess in the last month I really love this sweater.  36 days from cast on to cast off.  And knowing the way I knit, I can take a week or more off that easily. A month for a sweater, not too bad at all.
