third time's the charm
perfect for a simple pullover for tom. pattern is rosemary's middle sized sweater from the green mountain spinnery book. nice and plain, with just a simple cable running next to the armhole in the yoke.
swatchie swatchie with my new lantern moon rosewood circs size 7. nice.
cast on, knit about 10 inches, don't like the fabric i'm getting, too squinchy.
cast on again with size 8s. ah, much better fabric. knit up to the armhole 17 1/2 inches (measured his favorite sweaters, the pattern is longer). maybe meauring the width is a good idea, gah, 2 inches too narrow.
cast on again, third time's the charm. have the back yoke finished, started the front. love the 4 stitches to the inch, the knitting flies by.
hopefully the 16 inch lantern moons i tracked down will arrive in time for the sleevage.
