I finally was able to reorder some wool yarn for my work in progress. If you remember, a few months ago, I decided to experiment with sweater design. I decided to make it into a two tone sweater, with some trees details. I also wanted to have a nice "military" style detailing on the shoulders, which I extended to the 3/4 of the arms. It took a while for knitpicks to restock on the shade of yarn I had ran off, so this sweater was put aside for a long time.

Now it is hot outside, and this sweater, made of 100% Peruvian wool, will not be worn until next fall or winter. That is ok, though. I learned a lot of things while designing this sweater, and I probably will make another one with a better construction. This one was knit in the rounds, but as I finished it, I thought that maybe it was not the best way to knit this. The main reason is that the arms and shoulders area gave me a bit of hardship. I think knitting flat each pieces and then assemble, might be a better approach in the future. I will play around with the idea for next fall. Working with wool right now is just torture, and I rather focus on lighter pieces anyway.

So this is 'In The Woods'. I made notes of the construction in my knitting journal, and I hoped to write up a downloadable pattern, but I guess I'll have to wait to knit it again in a different construction.
