I am completely enamored. The Venezia Pullover has begun…
I can’t even tell you how much fun this is to knit. I love watching the pattern emerge and grow. Just to give you an idea of scale, I am starting the increases so I am at the waist. I am pretty surprised at how fast it has gone so far. I have just been relentless.
Must. Finish. In. November.
I think if all the stars align I just might be able to finish for NaKniSweMo. Hopefully.
The pictures are a little dark but hopefully you can see–they are as accurate as I could make them in artificial light. You want a close up?

I already said this on Craftster, but that is so beautiful!
it is beautiful! Look at all those tiny stitches!
I’m soooooo jealous!! I am hoping to get my magazine and start tomorrow. Yours is beautiful!
gosh that’s gorgeous! i have a subscription but haven’t got my magazine yet *pout* (i am in australia).
i like your colour choices much more than the yellowy tones in the original.
Gorgeous!!! I thought that sweater was beautiful, but I’m nowhere near that level of knitting. I can’t wait to see it finished!
Very, very pretty!! Nice work, too. Watching the pattern change and grow is the main reason I love knitting Faire Isle.
It’s looking great, you can do it!
Wow, I’m in awe…. 🙂
Wow – it looks beautiful!
You should be so proud, Erin, it looks perfect! Your fair isle is so freaking even. Also, I like how you have 3 hands 🙂
It is beautiful! And yeah, who is the 3rd hand, lol :).
Oh! That is stunning…I LOVE the colors you chose. I’m so excited to see this being knit!
OH.MY.GOD! Damn you! I was so close to being able to NOT knit this sweater. And here I am…. plotting it’s cast on. I can’t wait to see it in person!

You knock me out!
Wow, I’m so impressed with your progress…it is looking fantastic!
OMG that is gorgeous! Even though I love Eunny, I love your color choices much better! Cheering you on to finish!

It’s so pretty. I can’t wait to start mine. 🙂 You’re right, it is going really fast – you’ll definitely be done in November.
ok. i still think you are bordering on insane for even attempting this….but i have to say…that is freaking gorgeous!
Wow. I cannot wait to see it finished.
Ooh, I am turning green with envy. What yarn are you using? I think your FO list is my favorite out of anyone, including my own. You pick the best projects!
Beautiful! Looks like you’re having a great time knitting this up!
I just got my issue of IK and saw that sweater and wondered how many people would be up to the challenge of making it. It is so cool to see it “in progress” and you are doing an amazing job! Good luck in meeting your goal of finishing at the end of Nov.
I saw your post on Craftster and just had to come by and let you know how lovely it looks! Amazing work.
That sweater is absolutely beautiful. You might be a little insane to knit in one month’s time, but that will be a masterpiece sweater. Even if you don’t finish it by the end of this month, you will finish it and love the sweater forever.
WOW! The colors you picked look perfect, and it’s turning out great!
good lord, i admire your courage! my god, that is GORGEOUS!!!!!
I saw that in the new interweave and thought, “yeah right, only Eunny knits like that.” But you knit like that too. Beautiful. So glad to have found your blog.
