Dad gets vertical stripes... I steeked the front panel yesterday for the cardi... I`m a little worried that it might not be "generous" enough for him in the body, but since I`m knitting it side to side, it is a piece of cake to undo the cast off and knit a few more rows...in fact, I am going to add armhole shaping and make it a set in sleeve after all...This happens with everything I design: They evolve.
I decided to time myself knitting the last sleeve.
I completed a sleeve for Dad's sweater 2 nights ago...didn't like how it turned out (too skinny, too much shaping to the cap).
The good news is that I'm FLYING through the first sleeve on my father's long unfinished sweater ( modified drop shoulder (shaped sleeve cap) Kaffee Fasset inspired random stripe sweater...
Because when it's worn, it looks a bit like a molar...
I'm going to make a white one for my dentist, and one for her baby...
the two hats made from remnants steeked off the oversized panel of Dad's sweater.
It was raining yesterday, so I thought what a wonderful excuse to work on my sweater (Cable Guy from Son of a Stitch and Bitch). I knit an entire 400+ yd ball of Shi Bui Pagoda Bulky...I was working from button band to button band (no steeking on this one)...I had 3 balls and my hopes that I'd be able to complete my regauged design before I ran out quickly looked unlikely, as I had about 1/2 the body done with the one ball, and still had two sleeves and the remaining half.
I've decided to take a wee break and do the "cableguy" sweater from "Son Of Stitch and Bitch".
None of my files are attaching to my blog entries....it looks like they do, but when I save them...nothing shows up on the finished entry. HOLP! HOLP! (says the luddite).
