turbulence is flowing



yay!

here's the back piece of the sweater, completely to measurement specs. i cannot be more happy about this. i know this doesnt look like much, but it's hours spent completing a good chunk of the sweater!

(sorry for the amorphous blobshape, i tried to pin it quickly but the edges were curling like crazy)

now onto the fun stuff... :) i will delectably enjoy each and every cable and twist...



here's the surface of the stockinette. i'm using nashua handknits creative focus worsted in oatmeal.

the yarn is great, though can be at times a bit 'rovey'. the spin is not very tight, so sometimes my needle picks up stray halos. do you think the pocked texture will smooth out during blocking, or will give it some wooly charm?

according to this knittersreview article on ply/spin, i believe this yarn falls into woolen single ply, and all the beauty and shortcomings of it!

I started knitting this and reached the point where I just finished the chart. She tell us to knit 1 row decrease 4 between the markers. Well...she doesn't tell us which four stitches. Or maybe I'm just reading it wrong. Can you help?

hi sou-ying... i'm looking at the pattern now. i think you just decrease 4 evenly along the row. so, i wouldnt worry about it to much, as long as they're symmetric and relatively evenly spaced. for example, i'll take the petite sizing (which i'm doing). seems like you have 10 sts, marker, 52 chart sts, marker, 10 sts when you're done with armhole shaping. so i'd k10 sts, slip marker, k9, k2tog, k9, k2tog, k8, ssk, k9, ssk, k9, slip marker, k10. you're left with 68 stitches remaining on the row.

hope this helps! :) cant wait to see...
