Specimen: Sideways Spencer.
The sleeve is supposed to be worked until 16″ before casting on the body, which is two pattern repeats. Unfortunately, my row gauge is off and after 2 repeats, it’s more like 14″. So if I added another full repeat (the sleeve is supposed to end at the end of the chart) it would be far too long. I think I’ve decided now that I’ll just keep going forward, and add extra ribbing at the cuff or something – although thinking about it, if I did the sleeve longer and just added less ribbing, it might work. Hm.
I think I’m too lazy to rip back. It’ll work out.
In other news, Cozy:
I’m not even halfway done. But it moves pretty fast when I work on it, so I’m just going to make a point of working on it more. I’m also making good progress on the boy’s socks – just about at the heel of the first.
Oh, oh, oh – the Interweave Fall preview is up (wtf, summer isn’t even here yet): here. I like the Cable Cascade pullover, the cable and rib socks, the drop stitch cardigan, and the Union Square market sweater. Looks like a good issue – but great, just what I need, new projects to think about!
