Photo experiments and knitting progress

Sweater Project?
This is Sweater Project? Hell, I was beginning to think it was Burro Project. Or Photo Project.

Huh. Well, I guess I better get going on another sweater then. The next one is going to be a slight variation of the Samus Aran from the Fall 2005 Knitty. (Apparently quite a popular item during the Knitting Olympics.) But rather than do it in the suggested Orange You Glad colorway, I’m going to do it in a combination of black and charcoal Lamb’s Pride Worsted.

The black is going to come in on the cabled bits. I’m doing the cabling as Intarsia so that it’s black on charcoal.

I like the way it’s coming out so far. The back looks like absolute crap. I haven’t figured out how to plan for this kind of cable work yet, so there’s a weird mishmash of intarsia and faire isle going on in the back. Don’t look.

This also give me an opportunity to show my slowly-developing skills with my new camera. Here’s the same picture taken without a flash in the available indoor light.

Tiny steps . . .

    Intarsia Cables. Nice choice. Likely going to end with the loosening of your sanity…but nice choice. ; )

    I’ve looked at that sweater several times, and imagined it in all sorts of colors other than orange, but I never thought about doing it in two colors. It’ll look great, if it doesn’t drive you nuts first! 😉

    I keep making “Anus Saran” out of the name of that pattern. Nice sweater, tho ;-)))

    Very cool! I’d never thought of doing cables in a different color from the body. Bravo!

    Thanks for photos of the Harlot out of her natural habitat. And isn’t the D50 the most wonderfullest? I took photos of crimp in raw wool today without resorting to the manual.
