If you had asked me a few weeks ago if I would become completely addicted to knitting a stockinette sweater, I would have said that you were crazy. No, my brain is too active to knit plain stockinette, even when I'm reading. I'm just too much of a multi-tasker.
And I would have been wrong. In the past two weeks I have not been able to get the Kaleidoscope out of my head. Since I took the above picture Monday night I have finished the body and knit seven inches on the first sleeve. I just can't stop! I tried it on last night with a tank top and found it to be completely charming. I am glad I decided not to try the modifications for a higher neck but rather stuck with the original almost off the shoulder design. This might be the beginning of a new aesthetic for me.
The best part is that all the guys at work have been completely fascinated by it. They've watched the garment come together from when I cast on for the opening weekend of The Avengers. Last night one asked me just how many sweaters I had knit for myself. I had to stop and really think about it, but I could not give him a definitive answer. I guess I really can call myself a Knitter.
