Central Park Hoodie - Cable Redux
Finally stopped the perpetual procrastinating, and seamed the shoulders for The Hoodie, using the Invisible Horizontal technique from the Vogue Ulitmate Knitting Book. Turned out pretty well, I think, even though I abhor seaming. I picked up the stitches for the hood, with only minor tension issues, and I'm about 1/3 of the way through it. If you look closely at the photo, you'll notice that it seems I (again) turned a cable the wrong direction, earning this piece one of its monikers: Wabi-Sabi Sweater. Thanks to a suggestion from Tienne, I may be able to re-turn the cable without frogging all four rows of work; she sent me to the Yarn Harlot for a tutorial on re-turning cables. I'm off to give it a try today.
Tempting - NOT Ribbed for Her Pleasure
After all the 2x2 ribbing in Tempting, I am so over that stitch pattern for awhile. But I've got just about all 15 inches I need before starting the sleeves. And at least it's knit in-the-round, so NO SEAMING! Yeah!! But I'm worried that the fit is off; I wish I'd considered incorporating some short-rows to accomodate the boobage. I guess it isn't too late, at this point. I could still make pattern modifications. Not sure how exactly to go about this. Guess I'd better add perusing the posts from the Sexy Knitters Club FOs. I bet some of those bodacious babes already figured this out!
Noni Bobble Debacle
Apparently, I can't read patterns. Because I am going to have to re-knit fully 2/3 of the bobbles for my Bobbles, Bobbles Everywhere bag; doh! I misread the pattern, and only made 1/3 of them the correct number of rows. A-bobbling I will go, a-bobbling I will go, high-ho the dorkamo, a-bobbling I will go...
Have the yarn, but haven't the needles. Since I yanked the size needed out the Tempting this a.m. to model it, I should be able to squeeze in the first few rows today. Sadly, it is more of the (gasp) dreaded 2x2 ribbing.
