Honeydew progress!

Thanks to various Zoom meetings last week, I was able to knit quite a bit on Honeydew – and by the end of the week, I’d finished the body!

I really like the way the shoulder seams are joined with a centered double decrease – it creates a really nice-looking detail:

Then, over the weekend, I knit away at the 2×2 ribbing for the cowl neck. I ended up making mine quite a bit shorter than the pattern calls for, because I wanted more of a loose-fitting turtleneck than a deep drapey cowl (and I also wanted to make sure I don’t run out of yarn, since I can’t get any more of the sock yarn!). I think I got the look I was aiming for:

It feels slightly crazy to be knitting a mohair sweater now that we jumped from winter temperatures into summer ones! But I did step outside for a moment to capture a picture of Honeydew in the sunlight, with petals from our crabapple trees.

My daughter calls our trees “confetti trees” :)

Definitely not a seasonally-appropriate sweater, but it’ll be so cozy when winter temperatures return!

Wish me luck not running out of yarn while knitting the sleeves!!
