Tomato with Herringbone Pattern


Here is my Tomato progress after completing the herringbone pattern at the small part of my waist (a little below my chest). I really like it. The color is not correct on here - it's much darker. I'll take another once I work the neck edging and sleeve edging. I'm going to work on that tonight, so I won't have any finishing to do once the body is complete. I only have three more days to work on this, but I really think I'll be able to pull it off. It's funny, I was actually making 2 sweaters a month, but during my break-up, I stopped knitting for 3 - 4 months. Still, if I complete Tomato, I will have successfully completed 12 sweaters in 2007. It feels good....BTW - other than a blanket, this is the first real color work knit that I have ever done. I really dig it and will now look out for more multi-colored patterns.

Your colorwork is great--I've fallen in love with stranded work, too. I can't believe you've done so many sweaters this year, wow! Good luck on finishing Tomato soon.

Ooooooo, SO pretty! I just love the herringbone (and haven't gotten the nerve to try it myself yet!) 12 sweaters for 2007 should win you an award! :D

Looks great so far!! I thought you were doing 2 sweaters a month for awhile - that makes sense that you are at 12 even after stopping knitting entirely for a while. Glad you're back to knitting!

I've been reading through your past few posts and I am completely amazed at not only your knitting but also the eating and weight change you've gone through. I just started dating a raw foodie and he's gotten me to thinking about how I eat. Actually, he's just a continuation of the same thought that's been coming my way for some time. I think reading your blog will really prompt me to change some things in this coming year. Thanks for the inspirtion.

I love your Tomato! Colourwork is my next challenge, definitely. Well done on 12 sweaters for 2007! That's some total!
