‘Nother Sweater Report

Are you sick of it yet? What’s that you say? You are?

Too bad! Look at my progress:

I have separated the sleeves from the body and started the lace pattern. Lookie!

In the end I did not do the eyelet increase row, and I did not cast on extra stitches at the armpit. I think I am something between two sizes, and the sweater was starting to feel too big already, even without the increases, so I’ll knit for a bit longer then try it on to see if I like the fit. Also, I plan to knit the sleeves in the round, so I will pick up stitches along the underarm when I am ready to do the sleeves. Then I’ll knit a couple rounds in garter stitch and decrease back down a little so the sleeves aren’t so poofy. That’s my plan, anyway. I hope that what I see in my head works out! I’ll keep you posted on the fit.

Tomorrow is the first day of Spring. Yay! I don’t think I have ever been happier to kick Winter in the behind on the way out the door. And I’ll be celebrating by going to my knit group. What a great day it will be!

That’s all for now… I’ll write more later this weekend. Ciao!

    I did the eyelet increase row, and in retrospect I wish I hadn’t. Between that and knitting too long before splitting out the sleeves, I definitely had more room than I needed in that sweater. But I did like the larger sleeves, personally, because my upper arms need the extra room. 🙂

    I haven’t made that sweater, so no comment or advice. What yarn are you using? I love that purple.

    Where are you going next? Sleeves or body?
