Tilted Duster Progress Report

I've been working on the Tilted Duster from Fall 2007 Interweave Knits. By "working on" I mean knitting for 10 minutes here and there. With some relaxation time in California, I was able to complete the back:

I tried to get a photo of it that showed what it was sitting in front of but, I wasn't able to get both the knitting and the fireplace in the same photo (it does get a little bit chilly in the evenings and my husband is a delicate flower, so we turn on the gas fireplace in the evenings). I pinned it out because otherwise, it looked like a big magenta lump. I took some measurements and so far, I seem to be on track for fit. Stay tuned.


  1. Cool! Can't wait to see the finished product!

    (I couldn't help but giggling at the mental image of you sitting by the fireplace next to a daisy shivering in an afghan.)

  2. Ha, my husband is a delicate flower too, even though he looks like a stevedore. But we left our gas fireplace at our old house. There will be one (maybe a real one) here someday.

    A lovely pink blob. I am warming up to the Tilted Duster. It appears that I have a delayed fashion sense, as I much prefer projects that appeared an issue or two ago to the newer ones. Happy knitting!
