Hacked! And congrats

I'm back. Some rat bastard in Hong Kong decided to hack into my server, bring down this site and several others, and I've spent days trying to get back online. The Knitting at Large blog and site are now working, thank goodness.

In the meantime, I'm knitting a secret sweater. Can't tell you much now other than it's a round-yoke cardigan made in Cascade 220 worsted weight yarn and I love it! The pattern, which was designed by one of my favorite designers, will be published in September. I'll tell you more about it then, but here is a sneak peak at the sleeves.

This is my palette; the sweater will be 90 percent red, 10 percent gold, 9 percent black, and 1 percent turquoise. 

Congratulations to the Meghan Jones pattern winners! I'll be emailing you the patterns shortly.

Stonehenge winners - Taphophile and Reluctant Penguin
Racer Stripes - Jennie and Michele (Michele, please send me an email since I can't find you on Rav)
Color Crossing - Maggie and Imojo 
Chevron Tee - Shelda and Naycha

Thanks everyone for playing!

  4. Julie, sorry you had computer problems! Nothing more frustrating!!!
    That new secret sweater looks interesting. Can't wait to see what you do with those beautiful colors. Love that red!!!

  5. Sorry about the rat bastard! Glad you're back up again.

    But I am trying to figure out how you're going to knit 110% of a sweater :)

  6. Oh! And thank you for the lovely pattern. Can't believe I forgot to say that (too busy math nerding).

  7. Can't wait to see more. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the colors especially the red!
