She's from a Castle!

This is Sybil, my Downton knit-along project. We (Sybil and I) are discussing some things. I have two very lightweight, white cardigans in my wardrobe and she needs to be different somehow. My idea is to colorblock a bit with some leftover Cloak I have. Something like this Gap sweater. What we can't decide is how long to make her or how deep to make the colorblocking. We have some time to work it out.

I also still have one mitt of my two pairs of mitts I started weeks ago to start and a little bit of Levenwick on the needles, but Sybil is my main project right now. It's weird I don't have more...(ignore the progress bars over there =>. They lie...a little). What are you working on? Knitting anything for Valentine's? I think maybe I should and maybe I should get started very soon!

  1. Oh I love the color, this is going to be a sweater that will go with anything! Some colorwork would be really cute with that pattern too, of maybe some gentle embroidery? I'm seriously identifying with Edith because of my past experiences in love, she is going to make some serious drama.

  2. I love the idea of adding a second color! I'm working on the sleeves to a sweater I started for my fiance in the Fall of 2010. Not very much fun, but I'd like to finally be done with that project. I'm also working on a herringbone block quilt, which is a lot more fun that the sleeves.

    1. Sleeves are kind of a drag, right? The quilt sounds pretty!

  3. oooh, i love the sounds of some colorblocking! go look up pictures of colorblocked sweaters, and your preference of depth should surface sooner or later. i think this sweater is gonna be smashing!
