Casting On Rosemont

True to form, I am behind in the office Rosemont knit-a-long.

Of course.

I imagine my better half will bring the finished work to the office today, while I am only freshly cast-on myself and a mere one skein deep. (I can’t wait to see hers! I bet it will be super fab!)

I will say this: thank goodness for worsted weight. It knits up redeemingly fast. Casting on Hannah Fettig's Rosemont Cardigan from Home & Away

The pattern is from Hannah Fettig’s  Home & Away: Knits for Everyday Adventures, which I am obsessed with and adore. I already have brownie smears on my section (it helps me tell which page I am on…). The pattern can also be found individually on Ravelry here, although I truly can’t recommend the book enough.  I want to knit All The Patterns. Seriously. They are all so timeless and wearable and include instructions for both seamed and seamless versions. I am sticking with seamless on this baby. Seaming really isn’t my thing. Casting on Hannah Fettig's Rosemont Cardigan from Home & Away

I have so many great projects in the works right now. I am not sure how Rosemont will fall into the mix. My goal is to finish by December (no pressure!), but perhaps I will get this puppy off the needles in a couple of months. If I don’t screw up.

So, if you want to join in, there’s time.

Rosemont or bust.

Simultaneous brownie and wine consumption required. Just to be fair.

    I love this sweater…..and it reminds me a lot of Edith (I think) from Pam Allen’s Home book…..that I totally lust over. Hers is a bit longer, drop sleeves, and pockets. (really, it does have the same look!) Worsted, too, which really does click along at a nice pace!!! I just may join you…..only knit this one and pretend it’s Rosemont. (I have no yarn for it, though….so I might get delayed ’til December—you know how that goes, I’m sure!!!) Not sure if we ever did talk geography….western Kentucky here. Crazy weather…..I’m looking for those ferns TODAY. It’s sunny today and I’m ready for spring. (Spring launches in to summer here soooo fast, and I totally HATE summer, so I have a tendency to push the limits a bit. We might get out of the 40s this afternoon, so I’m counting it.)

      Two knits-a- longs! Hurray! North north north California here, so I guess thousands of miles between us after all. Bummer. I was hoping to drop in for tea.

    It will fly, before you know it you will be casting off. Love the color!

    I like the plumpness of this worsted and this celery green is great for spring.

    ooh, I love the colour you chose! And all knitting is vastly improved with the presence of wine and brownies. 😉
