Making good progress on my Throwback. This really is an easy knit – worsted weight yarn on size 8 needles is knitting up so quickly, and I love the Highland Duo main color yarn. It is so soft and cozy!
As I was working on the colorwork over the weekend, it occurred to me this sweater is a perfect lead-in to the Forest Darkness sweater. It let me practice 1) knitting with three colors per row, and 2) knitting colorwork flat (back and forth, rather than in the round). Those are two skills I will need for the Forest Darkness, which I’ve been stalling on, in spite of having the yarn wound and ready to knit since sometime in January. So hopefully finishing this will give me that last push to get going on Forest Darkness.
