I completed the gauge swatch - it was a little off - too many stitches/rows - on the 2nd needle size, but the difference will make it a hair smaller, which will be fine.
This garment is knitted starting at one sleeve, across the body, ending with the other sleeve. So I have cast on, knitted up the sleeve, and have cast on the additional stitches for the body. I have a plane flight ahead of me, so I am hoping for a lot of progress over the weekend.

For my hols, I have just bought the new Hanne kit in no. 1 colourway (4 colours). I have only just started it but the yarn is lovely to use; lambswool and cotton. I'll keep you posted as to the progress which hopefully will not take too long as it is sleeveless.

Thanks for your invitation. I'm new to the blogging world (other than checking my niece's knitting blogs, so forgive if I'm not correct.
I started the Gloria sweater, got freaked out and set it aside. Tuesday night I went to the knitting guild meeting, talked to a couple of knitters and decided I was reading too much into the pattern. In other words, second guessing myself. I'm just at the beginning, so if you have any words of wisdom, I'd appreciate it. I love the way the colors work together.

Hello everyone. After three years of knitting my DaCapo, I have finally finished. Its been a journey, albeit, one with a satisfying ending. I just bought a Jamieson and Smith colour card and am debating a second sweater. I feel like a pro now.
Here is the story of my finish.
