Little Knit
I seem to have a nasty habit of mentioning a knit I'm working on and then, if I lose interest in it, just don't mention it again. I really have to stop doing that. So for those who saw that post, and wanted to know how my makeshift baby aran turned out, here it is:
Baby sweater with cables
Baby sweater back
The yarn is a bulky cotton-acrylic mix in navy which doesn't look washed out as it does in the pictures. The joining of the sleeves to the body and the yoke are not exactly perfect, because I didn't really plan the whole garment through before knitting. I just swatched for gauge and to try out some cables to see how they looked. Once I figured out how many stitches I was casting on, I figured out what sequence of cables would fit within that number, then just knit up the sweater the same way I did when I knit Daisy before. This time I used a really bulky yarn, and was winging the decreases for the arms scye and the yolk, so all in all it could have been a lot worse. Maybe this will teach to plan a bit more? Have sketches with notes and carefully planned stitch patterns like Eunny? I really do wish I could, at least sometimes, stop being such knit by the seat of my pants kinda girl. But hopefully it's something I can learn while I work on designing more.
