A quickie post because I need your opinion on something. I’m getting in a little bit of knitting, and rather than start something new, decided to finish up a CIC sweater I had started. Just the sleeves to go, but I am very dissatisfied with this neckline. Pretty ugly, huh? I know that it will slip smoothly over a little one’s head, but is it way too wide? Should I rip back and do a ribbed neckline instead? Any and all comments and opinions are welcomed.
And I finished a pair of socks. These are Old Shale socks, pattern courtesy of Marguerite. Great pattern, great socks. The Old Shale top is Trekking, the rest is St. Ives. Can’t wait for the weather to get cold enough to wear them. Maybe tomorrow?
I’ve been able to do a few rows on the afghan as well. I am practicing cabling without a needle. I have attempted it in the past, but found that I actually could go faster with a cable needle. However, with a little practice I’m finding that I like it. I wanted to master it because I have a habit of losing my cable needles or finding myself stranded somewhere without one. I still have to think about whether I’m picking up the stitches from the front or back, but I’m getting better with practice.
