I made a lot of progress on my I∂unn sweater this week. I brought four balls of yarn (which miraculously arrived the night before I left—a mailperson dropped them off around 7 PM, well after my regular mail had been delivered—I’m not sure what happened there), and knit all four of them, which amounted to a great deal of knitting being accomplished.
I added some waist shaping, which is missing from the cardigan, working three sets of 4 stitch decreases and increases that begin about an inch below the divide for the arms. I placed the back increases and decreases on the back, not along the sides of the body, which I think makes for a slightly more flattering fit on me. I’m really close to starting the ribbing at the bottom—I may have that to show you next week, but since I ran out of yarn, I shipped the sweater back to myself, along with some Christmas presents I’d received, so it all depends on when that box arrives and how much I’m able to knit before next Saturday.
Today’s the last Sweaterday for 2012! I hope to be able to continue posting regularly on Saturdays for a while in the new year, as at some point I’ll be working on Heidi Kirrmaier’s Rain Dance as part of the Sweater Odyssey knitalong.
But now I’m going to go play in Central Park.
