It’s too cold for prolonged composition. And this weather is getting boring. I’d prefer a nice, cosy snowstorm, at whatever inconvenience to my fellow-citizens.
I’ve reached the seeding on the Grandson Sweater. There should be enough by tomorrow to merit a pic. I’m worried again about size – is it too big? I recalculated, and find that I’m getting the size I'm aiming at, after anxious thought. That’s some comfort. Essentially, I’m knitting a Medium although the measurements I took at source over the holiday might suggest Small.
I tend to wind up too snug when I aim at a good fit. And this isn’t an indoor sweater. I’ll press on, at least for now.
But have you seen the cardigan Joe knit for his mom? That’s what I call fit.
Thank you for the help on the steek question. Moorecat, of course you’re right, smites brow – the neck stitches would be left securely behind, and a steek cast on above them.
Elizabeth, I ordered the “Knitting Glossary” DVD just now. I established last year that Schoolhouse Press DVD’s will run on my machine. I’ve got two, the Russian Prime and the Saddle-Sleeved Jacket, but haven’t done them justice. This sounds much more useful and more dip-into-able. I had been hesitating anyway over the new Estonian lace book they’re selling, “The Haapsula Shawl”; your comment sort of tipped the balance. I ordered that, too.
