Almost A Sweater
Then there will be the neckline, and since I don't like the depth of the neckline, I think I shall pick up and knit the 10 rows of diamond, and then cast on 10 stitches and do the small cable around the neck. At least that is the plan at the moment, all subject to change at a moments
I think that I am really going to enjoy wearing this sweater, the Knitpicks Merino DK has knit up wonderfully and has done no pilling at all during the knitting process.
It is still not a speedy process because it does take a lot of concentration, so 4 rows average per day, sometimes 6 if I am feeling wide awake but more than that and I have to do a fair amount of fixing on the first row the next day, so pushing is not really worth it, since it increases mistakes.
So what is next? Well there is a worsted/bulky project the Cuff to Cuff that I am doing Cuff to Middle, Cuff to middle, Join. That I started last winter and got both sleeves finished so I need to cast on the front and back and knit to the Middle. Since this is such fat yarn, it should go really quickly.
The other sweater is the Trip Trap that needs 2 more stripes on the right front and the sleeves. garter stitch so fast because mindless.
I am looking forward to the mindless knitting, Beadword has been fun, but it follows Am Kamin and The FLAKs and mindless is looking pretty good at this time.
Looks wonderful! It looks like you did this from the top down, might I ask did you follow the Flak directions (well, you know what I mean don't you?) to do this?
Thanks very much.
Yes I know what you mean and yes I did. Cast on the small cable knit 4 inches, pick up knit down the back and front to bottom of armholes, knit sleeves, back to body and knit down.
thanks for asking.
And thanks for the comments to you as well Junie.
