(Yes, those are baby feet. I just couldn't get them out of the frame...)
What have I tried out on this sweater? Well....
- I am knitting top-down, in the round, as suggested by Barbara Walker in Knitting from the Top.
- I've slipped the first stitch when joining the initial round and performed a "knit repair" on that stitch at the beginning of the second round using the long strand of yarn that gets created when joining. I have learned that from Amy Detjen in her Craftsy course Custom Yoke Sweater.
- I've swatch in the round using the Whole-Loop Method.
- I've incorporated rolled stockinette edges.
- I've made jogless stripes and have woven in my ends "as I go".
- I've incorporated bust darts.
I am done with the yoke and have started the body. This sweater, which started as a scrap yarn exercise, is becoming a garment I am really looking forward to wear!
I have also finally received the yarn I needed to finish Gabrielle's cardigan. I still need a zipper, but at least I can get started on the edges.
While retrieving these pictures from my memory card, I found other photos I took last week. We had quite a snowstorm of sticky snow:
And that's perfect for a snowman!!
