|Side by side, both on a long circular needle, the left and|
right front of the vest have armholes now.
After all the armhole shaping, I'll knit for a bit and then work on shaping the neck. Hope to have these two pieces on the blocking board this week.
The back will take a few days to dry, but no pressure so will leave it alone. I've inserted US9 DPN's to hold the shoulder stitches. After I block the fronts I'll use a 3-needle bind-off to join the shoulders. If you haven't tried this yet, find a YouTube or tutorial. Makes for nice smooth seams.
|Schematic to the left -- the diagram that gives all the|
measurements so I can block to the size I knitted. At
the top you can see the wooden DPN holding the shoulder
While the fronts are on the blocking board, I'll finish the hood. Soon I will have a new vest! And in one of my favorite colors.
Worked a bit on one of the garter stitch (knit every row, no purls) squares for the mystery KAL afghan. When I reached what I thought was the end of the square I counted stitches and wouldn't you know, not the correct number. Had to rip it (frog) back to the correct count.
Blame it on Downton Abbey.
