Call to Arms
|Last weekend I had 2 days that I could devote chunks of time to knitting.|
This was the result:
It's now resembling an actual garment! Only the sleeves remain.
As the pattern is written, I should be knitting them from the cuff up, but I am going to try pickinng up stitches around the armhole and knitting them top down using the technique described in Wendy Bernard's book Custom Knits. My only concern is that it involves short row shaping at the top of the sleeve. Since I have at least 4 different dyelots (it is entirely possible that each of the 6+ skeins I have comes from a different dyelot), I am going to have to figure out how I can alternate skeins while doing short rows.
Then there's that whole matter of all those ends at the bottom...
