I’m nearly finished with the back of Nell. I would have been done if I hadn’t made a mistake and had to rip back a few inches.
Ah well, it’s still been going pretty fast, all things considered. And it looks like the sizing will be pretty good. I’m not making it quite as long as the pattern indicates (hmmm – making something shorter – that’s a switch), but it will still be about car-coat length.
It’s a pretty easy pattern to knit, but my hands hurt after a while from the tight stitches on the big needles, so I can’t knit on it for as long a time as I usually can.
