Have a Knit-tastic Weekend!

It's a beautiful fall day here.  Warm and sunny; the leaves turning gold and crimson; cool breeze blowing.  And I am knitting a comfy fall sweater.  I'm hoping it will turn out like the image I have in my head:  a rich red V-neck sweater with 3/4 length sleeves, soft and comfy.  I'm knitting it out of  Main Line by Knit Picks.  I chose Red Velvet for this sweater and hope the wool/cotton blend will be just right for these cool fall days.  The color is lovely and makes me think of the Autumn Blaze maple tree we have in our yard.  I'm using Elizabeth Zimmermann's seamless sweater method and hope it works out.  I'm hoping I can figure out how to do the V-neck and a set in sleeve in this method, but I may have to do a raglan in order to get it to work.  I've considered picking up stitches for the sleeves and knitting them from the shoulder down as I'm really not sure if I have enough yarn for long sleeves.  But I don't know.  We'll see how it goes.

I still cannot post pictures as for some reason my computer will not allow me to resize the pictures from my camera and they are too huge to post in the size they are now.  But hopefully Mr. KnitWit can figure out what's wrong over the weekend and I can post some pics on Monday.  I may have to take a break on Sunday and go play some disc golf with my hubby as the weather is supposed to be gorgeous, but otherwise, a-knitting I will be.  Hope to have something to show for it on Monday!  A happy weekend to all!
