Easing on down the long road
Year 13 starts a week from Saturday.
So, the Sockotta sweater. After I posted about getting the first skein finished, I switched to working on the Baby Surprise Sweater and, after tonight's bus ride to see Par I'm in the middle of the 10 row patch of working on the center 90 stitches. Pictures sometime soon.
The sweater's first sleeve is about to be cast on. Here's a rough plan of attack:
Sleeves – cast on 66 stitches (25% of 260) with size 0’s and work X rounds of K1 P1 rib.
Then, with 3's increase up to 86 by increasing 2 stitches each side of start of round 10 times, spaced X rounds apart.
I use 25% for the wrists since I seem to have thicker forearms than the Zimmermann family. In any case, I need a supper and then I'll get started.
See you tonight, yes? I'm smack out of portable projects right now, besides the sock for the train, so I think it might be entrelac scarf time.
