the scrumpDIdiddleyOHMPtious cotton Ribby

Without even trying, I’ve entered the Spring Zone. This time of year for me means lovely skies, beautiful bulb flowers, and sneezing my head off. Ye old Allergies have me hittin’ a wall this week – a little lazy. A little relaxed. Actually kind of yummy.

I’ve been enjoying the slower progress of my Cotton Ribby! This is my #66 BusMAte KnitAlong project and is growing as surely green and long as those flowers poking out of the dirt in my front yard.

You can see in the picture, I’ve used the larger rib repeats for the entire sleeve. The sleeve increases are then worked into the sides as Stockinette St. This matches the front, which has the same effect on the middle section. I basically dropped the side ribbing on both pieces.

This makes a more relaxed ribbed sleeve! I am really enjoying the cotton yarn too – woolies be GONE – your time is D-O-N-E. I see a Samoa Scoop in my future (hmm, dark brown?) – it appears that the Cotton Ease yarn is discontinued and this would be an excellent substitute for that pattern too. Can you believe I actually FINISHED all of my wool projects this year – there is not a single woolie friend hiding in the Marination Chamber ready to pop-out on me next fall like a little fiend. How the heck did this happen – WOOT!
