Even though I didn’t get as much done this weekend as planned because of the Marathon, a personal finish line was crossed nonetheless…


One sleeve to go…

I still love this yarn – the COLOR! – the stitch definition – the feel…

I still am torn over the pattern – it’s fussy fickle fiendish code leaves me to my own devices again and again. But, LOVE THAT Bottom Flare and Eyelet Rib!!!

But of course, I had to upsize this sweater two sizes, because neither given size was big enough for my Large American Body…

I also made it conform to my own Standard Set of Measurements. I have a bottom line dimension *catalog* for cardigans, pullovers, and shells that I adhere to without fail. (Produce your own Catalog – follow the instructions you’ll find HERE in an article that I wrote last year). Throughout the knitting process of a garment, I measure key points and see if they are in line or matching my catalog.

Less surprises at the very end! Better fitting and wearable garments in the closet!

Last fuss: tweaked the Sleeve Cap on this design to fit my shoulder. The picture looks like it’s gonna work just FINE…

Dirty Little Secret: I was too tired after my RaceDay tasks on Sunday to do much but collapse in front of da Tube and I was trapped by Kirstie Allie in “While I Was Gone”. BUT, I fell asleep 15+ minutes before the end of the 100% Pure Ivory Soap (Opera) was done. I’ll never know HOW IT ENDED! I hope to take this secret with me to the Grave…
