Both Pentagon Sweater sleeves are knit and blocking – more ironing, seaming, finishing, photographing, and wearing will all happen shortly. It’s almost time to say goodbye, sniff, sniff, but not before saying hello to some new stuff!

Wild speculation encouraged 😉

    I have no idea what your up to – I just want to write the first comment! Yea!! The Pentagon sweater looks amazing! Can’t wait to see it on you!

    I see Tilli Tomas (have you seen the beaded skeins? Beautiful!) I fondle it regularly in my LYS–pick a great project that I can copy!

    Grumperina, you have such an air of mystery and adventure about you! always getting into complicated projects, then finishing them in record time (how on earth did you finish/block the sleeves so fast?), then teasing us with hints about the next new adventure.

    I have no idea what you might be making, but i love the color and texture of the yarn!

    OOO! Tilli Tomas!! The sight of that yarn makes me think lacey shawls and evening/summer tops. The golden tan ribbing reminds me of socks for some reason.

    The last time I saw a coordinated pile of yarn like that, it was destined for log cabin. But something tells me you aren’t doing log cabin…

    I don’t have any idea, but I was just looking at those same colors of yarn, thinking, “If I started now, I could have a neat fall sweater when it finally got cold enough to wear it.”

    Those colors are my favs.

    That top yarn looks like Dale Svale. No clue what pattern that is, though. The rest looks yummy! Can’t wait to hear all about it.

    I’m not even going to try to guess because we both know I’ll just get it wrong. But, whatever you’re up to, the yarns are all gorgeous.

    I think the top yarn looks just like some Madil Eden bamboo yarn I picked up last year in the smae colour. Great colour! No idea what you’re making. =)

    I’m very curious to see what you will work on next. The Pentagon sweater went so very fast. Are you happy with the knit? Any more sweaters from the Knitting Nature book?

  11. Susanne

    That looks like linen yarn to me, but it also sounds like I should check out Tilli Tomato yarn!! it is gorgeous. love the way you put the colours together.

    GAHHH!!! You are such a fast knitter!! Move over various well-known speed-knitting bloggers… here’s Kathy and she’s a bionic knitter! This sweater is definitely CLEVER and it’s turning out so beautifully in this color. I’m sure it’s a very flattering color for you.

    ok seriously unbelievable!!! your blocking the final bit of the sweater? The knitting angels shine upon you that’s for sure. 😉 can’t wait to see it on you.

    I can’t even imagine what you are up to now though … a bag? summer top? socks? Stars girl slow down your going to break something 😉 seriously though I just wish I could knit that quickly!

    I don’t know what it will be, but that yarn is gorgeous! I love the colors, especially that sneaky little green hiding in the back. 😉

  15. Kim

    Could this be the makings of the next ultra-famous Grumperina pattern? I keep focusing on that provisional cast on. What could that be for? Hmm. But I agree.. the beige ribbing type stuff looks like socks..

    Ooo. Tilli Thomas. Mmmm. Please do give us a review of that yarn. I love the colors but can’t bring myself to pop $40 per skein unless it is the nicest yarn to work with.

  17. Sarah

    Pardon me for spoiling the fun inherent in wild speculation, but dare I ask what’s happened to the Mountainash Shawl?

  18. Whitney

    That Tilli Thomas yarn is gorgeous, and just my kind of colors. Can’t wait to see the finished Pentagon Sweater! And I second the question about the Mountainash shawl 😉

  19. mari must be plotting something new with those colors. looks like there is enough for a jacket or a shawl in fall colors. Can’t wait to see what you do with those!
