So. My new Lucy was coming right along – got up to the yoke on the weekend. Pretty!
The yarn is Dream in Color Classy in Black Parade, and I did a slightly lengthened version with just 4 skeins! Motoring along, wanted to get it done early this week so I could give it a good washing and find some buttons (I’m thinking some little pewter ones we have at the store).
Pretty pretty texture. I finished the yoke, with a slightly different neckband treatment this time (more on that with the FO post) and went to graft the underarm.
Um, notice anything? I didn’t put enough stitches on hold for the sleeve gusset! Crap. I did notice that the number of stitches was off once I got up to near the top of the yoke (and there were a lot fewer stitches) but I kind of ignored it and kept going. And this is why.
But, since I’m REALLY not about to reknit the entire yoke, I fudged the grafting and it’s blocking now. We’ll see once it’s dry and I can put it on whether I decide to do something crazy.
Nah. I really won’t rip out the yoke. So near-FO it is!
