|Mondo Cardi Sleeve Modification|
Fancy iPhone app camera fanciness!
So, I am a Continental Knitter - translation - I hold my yearn in my left hand when I knit. This is a very fast way to knit, but there are some drawbacks as well. When knitting a pattern that is both knit in the round and knit back and forth, there are sometimes obvious differences in the look of the stitches. In a small gauge it is not obvious - but at 18 sts per inch, I am noticing it.
So when I got to the sleeves of the Mondi Cable Cardi, I decided to make a modification.
I took the finishing instructions for the neckline and applied them to the sleeves as well to make a little cap sleeve.
So far so good. Of course I still have the collar - then I will be done right? Not so fast - I tried it on and figured out that I had not increased in the body, so it is too small at the bottom. Once I finish the neckline, I will be taking my perfectly finished sweater and ripping back half the body - booooooooo!
Back to the couch and my sweater - all day Throwdown with Bobby Flay on the Food Network - perfect :)
