July Engineering

Dear Oogy,
I have found a few more UFOs that eluded detection last month, so I'll be joining you in extending those projects into July.

Here is my plan for our reverse engineering project for July: I plan to take some of the design features in this sweater
This is "Spice Variety Sweater" from last fall's Territory Ahead catalog.  A search of their website suggests that it is not currently available, probably because it is approx. 90 degrees outside.
 and use this yarn to make my own version.
The teal yarn is Oogy-spun alpaca!

The perpetual knitting pattern calendar will determine the portion that gets done each day.
I don't plan to make the sweater as long as the original, but I like how the individual patterns are put together.  You see that I didn't really get very far today, so we'll see how it goes.  We cannot be surprised on July 31st if we have another UFO on our hands.

It was very warm and humid today, which made working with the wool/silk/angora blend yarn a bit unappealing.  Brownie had this to say about it:
I hope you are staying cool, too!

That is a cool sweater! How many different patterns do you think you'll use in it??
