02.22.10: Off the needles! Just need to graft the sleeves, block and add buttons.
02.17.10: I have to admit - this is a very unique construction. It’s a real joy knitting something so different and watching how it becomes a garment. However, because of the odd shape that it takes as you proceed, I find it kind of bulky and in the way when I am knitting back on the short rows. It kind of pushes up on the cable of my circular needle.
I have completed the right front & sleeve and have just begun the back. The thought of knitting 102 rows is kind of putting me off, right now, but I will persevere & knit on, although last night, I only knit about 8 rows….
I am in agreement with al ot of other knitters that the cabled yoke gets very puffy. Hopefully I can smooth that out in the blocking.
I think the biggest issue I have encountered so far is that my wrapped stitches are turning out really loose. I may have to run some yarn through them “creatively” when it is all said & done to hide the looseness.
02.12.10: Will cast on tonight at the opening ceremony!
