Golly, a whole week has slipped by. Where has the time gone? I have a good one for you this week. The last time we were together I showed the #73-Top Down Woman's Sweater. I did not like the neck as it was really too wide and the sleeves were going to be too tight. That sweater got frogged: rip it, rip it, rip it. I did a gauge swatch with this bulky yarn and then cast on for my version of #73. This one is knit from the bottom up, but it still has the short (but wider) sleeves and the raglan shoulders. One big difference is that I am knitting the whole thing in the round. This sweater was knit in 7 days and proved how much faster it is to knit in the round than back and forth.
steeking and it is my first attempt. After doing the test on the swatch, I can see using it not only to make a cardigan out of a pullover, but to add pockets after-the-fact, buttonholes, neck holes and armholes. Oh the possibilities!
