slogging, slogging, slogging...

What do you do when you're slogging through 17 inches of black stockinette stitch in the dark evenings of winter?

After only seven inches of stockinette are done?

Why, start a new sweater, of course!!

The yarn for Rogue came in the mail - hurray! Harrisville Highland in Azure.

I bought it on weaving cones, skeined it off, and gave it a bath to eliminate the spinning oils. It blooms so nicely, becoming a much plumper yarn.

I'm off to start a sleeve/swatch.

Oooh, I have had Rogue on my list of to-dos forever! I can't wait to read about your progress.

I have so much coned yarn and I usually bathe it after knitting. I bet it is more pleasant to handle pre-washed, though. I'll have to try it.
