Fifth Fast Sweater Finished
I ordered the yarn for sweaters for the grandchildren, from Webs, so that should be here soon and I can get started on those. I hope to get the backs and sleeves of the boys, sweaters done before Mom and I leave but that may not be possible, in which case I will take them with me.
I used a seed stitch border on the hood because you can't see any design, and it overlaps which should keep it around the face and on warmly without need of drawstring. It is soft and fuzzy and very very warm.
Once that was finished I got out the Trip Trap I started early last year, and ripped out the fronts. The sweater
is made of all of these short pieces of yarn so I wanted to have a way of knowing which yarns went into which stripe, So I got out the snack baggies, (since I have a lifetime supply) and a black marker. I labeled the baggies L-1 through L-6 and R-1 through R-8, (because I finished the right side and most of the left before I actually checked against the back and realized that I had changed gauge, (probably changed needles) then as I ripped out, each of the 4 colors of each stripe went into the corresponding baggy. Now if I can avoid losing the baggies, (they are all in a larger baggy) maybe I can get this finished. I would like to be able to wear it this year.
