Tempting is coming along. After knitting on the never ending 2×2 ribbing watching the Oscars on Sunday I was ready to start the sleeves and attach them. Everything is attached and going round and round and round. I have about 2.5 more inches before the eyelets then only a few more rounds and then DONE!!!
The good thing about working on a 2×2 ribbed sweater it’s a an easy project to take places. If I get distracted and ignore the fact that it’s a 2×2 rib, it’s easy to fix. I can mostly work on it without looking. This does translate to occasionally dropping down a few stitches to fix the random purl stitch in the ribbing.
There is one problem. I am might run out of yarn. Way to go on the planning skills Allison. I did my math, I probably just did it wrong, but I still did it before I started this project.
Maybe I’ll squeak by like I did with the Evil Pink vest. If not I have 2 choices… get another skein of twist in olive and know that it’s not going to match… I alternated ball 1 and 2 every other row, then knit ball 2 and 3 for a few rounds, finished up with 2, then alternated 3 and 4. I doubt that makes any sense, but it does have a nice subtle stripping effect going on. Or finish with a contrasting color. (I’d probably use natural). At least I knit the sweater in a semi solid instead of Indiecita like I originally planned. That would have been horribly bad.
