Knitting a man's cardi in sock weight yarn is quite a job.
That's a lot of stitches.
I am down to the very last few inches on the sleeves.
I've had to rip them out and adjust the sizing three times in order to get them to fit in the armhole. Thank goodness for Dumpy Debbie, my dress form. Without her I would never been able to figure out how things go together. I still have no idea if all these measurements and calculations are going to result in a sweater that fits but I have to say I'm ready to try it all again if need be. I'm starting to enjoy the challenge.
Looking good!!! I'm about to embark on that same type of challenge for myself. Now I know who to go to if I run into trouble. Wish me luck.ReplyDelete
It looks very nice! Your header is also very pretty and creative.ReplyDelete
I know it is a lot of work, but those lighter weight yarns sure make a pretty fabric. Looks like all is going well.ReplyDelete
THere must be a sweater bug going around! I m loving the sweater I'm knitting but it is with BIGGY yarn. Yours is a real labor of love. Hope it fits. Hope he wears it out!ReplyDelete
The sweater looks terrific. I've never tried set-in sleeves.ReplyDelete
You can do it!ReplyDelete
It is going to be a favorite go-to sweater for him; I can tell! Knit On!ReplyDelete
