No unraveling here, just knitting round and round on my Stopover 2.0.
I love my original Stopover from 2016 and I’ve always meant to knit another one. In fact, I’ve had the yarn for two since I knit the first one. I love the neutral gray, black and white of this new one and I’m hoping to have it finished within a week or two.
As for reading, I’ve been waiting to start Kingdom of the Blind and was basically holding out for when I didn’t have anything from Overdrive and this week that’s what happened. I’m loving this latest trip to Three Pines, I will say that.
That’s my reading and knitting for this week. Be sure and check out what everyone else is reading and knitting over at Kat’s.
I’ve always admired Stopover, but a pullover in that yarn isn’t very practical here. Your 2.0 is going to be beautiful and I’ll wish you ONE cold day later this month so you can wear it before spring!
This is my favorite part of a bottom-up yoked sweater — it’s like magic when the three tubes come together!
I am with Sarah – that magic moment when those three tubes join! I love your color choices! Kingdom of the Blind finally arrived on Overdrive – along with Becoming! It is a banner week!
I hope you enjoy Kingdom of the Blind as much as I did. All the books I had on hold became available at the same time this week. Librarian, why does that happen? I am going to have to do some serious reading over the next couple of weeks. Can’t wait to see your new Stopover. It is looking mighty good.
You’re going to love that new, neutral Stopover! And I think you’re reading the perfect snowy-day kind of book. XO
Love your latest Stopover. That pattern is still on my list of things to knit. Like Becky, I had a TON of books come through on Overdrive in the last two days. More than I can possibly read in the 3 week borrowing period. Some I will need to return.

I hope you return to your Thea Rachelle, I made a tunic one in flannel with the box pleats (or are they tucks?) and I adore it ! I find it hard to know if what I am sewing is going to be wearable right up until it’s finished and washed to settle in. Can’t slip it on halfway through like knitting!

Oooops! So sorry, I just left a comment for Kat on your blog ! What I want to say here is love that Stopover. I’m addicted to knitting lopi sweaters in size10 needles – I’m working in a Felix now .
I want too it a neutral sweater next and now that I have done one bottom up sweater, I might be ready for another.
Your Stopover is going to be so pretty! I love the neutral colors that will look great with anything!
I love the color of your Stopover and wait to see the finished piece! I love the look of mine but it’s just too scratchy at the neck. So sad.
I have two Stopovers, one blue and one red. I toyed with the idea of making a third one in gray like yours! But I wanted to do a rainbow of color pops at the yoke (just those single accent stitches). Still on my back burner, but there’s such a long list of knitting before it.
Will you keep your yoke neutral? I’m hoping for a rainbow for you!
Also, note to Patty just above: would you consider frogging the neck edge and reknitting just that part? I put a stockinette rolled edging on mine, so it rolls away from my neck. It doesn’t bother me if I wear a T under it. You can check my blue Stopover on Ravelry for more info. Hope this helps!

Nice! I am reading Becoming at the moment and enjoying it.
OMG—Stopover is a must! Yours is beautiful.
I need to build up my confidence to try sweater knitting. My one attempt was with the simplest pattern ever invented. 🙂
I loved Kingdom of the Blind.
Knitting a warm Stopover and reading a Louise Penny book sound just perfect! I hope you get some extra down time to enjoy doing both of them!
Can’t wait to hear what you think about this latest book. In my line of work I am finding these books to be way to close to reality.
That gray sweater is going to be perfect. And Louise Penny – what luck. The audio just came in on my hold list on Overdrive. Tonight I am going to push play and join you in a visit to Three Pines.
