I’ve been enjoying knitting on the mohair pullover, but was still hungering for cozy winter sweaters. Plus, I knew I wouldn’t finish it before the end of the month. (I do have the front piece done, though!). So on Saturday, I started another big comfy sweater. Ireally hoped I’d have it done by the end of the month. Bulky yarn, big needles, and lots of stockinette in the round. Should be a snap!
But as usual, life got in the way and I spent three days rebuilding my mother’s computer. Her computer is in much better shape now, but the chances of having this pullover done by the end of the month are pretty slim.
I’m not really sure about the ribbing, though. I’m making the sweater loose-fitting, and the ribbing might pull in a bit too much compared to the rest of the sweater. But if so, I guess I can always cut off the ribbing and re-knit it downward on bigger needles. Or if I don’t like the ribbing at all, I suppose I could do a turned hem. It’s only knitting, right?
If I have enough yarn, I’m also thinking about doing some afterthought pockets.
The pattern has a few issues. Some of it is a little confusing, and the instructions for the neckband are incomplete – it looks like the last half of the paragraph got accidentally deleted. But it won’t be hard to figure out.
