On The Needles

Off The Needles

I think I have a major front band shortage.
She hasn't tried it on yet but I think the front is going to pull way up when it's on the body.
Have you ever ripped back after you have blocked something?
Is it going to be a night mare?
I thought I followed the pattern of pick up 3 stitched within 4 rows.
Maybe I didn't.
How do you really know when you have enough stitches to make the band fit correctly?
I do love the elbow length sleeves.

Greta Vest got quite a bit of attention this week.
I knitted a few rows each night.
I am really anxious to finish mine.

We have an event March 8th,
I wonder......

Your cardigan looks so nice! I have never made a sweater, so can't help with your question, but I'm interested in what others have to say. Good luck getting your vest finished before your event.

The cardigan is lovely - such a pretty color and pattern.

I think the cardigan will relax a bit once your friend uses it and the band will not be an issue.
