Kung Hey Fat Choy to you all!
The sweater for Husband gained some progress:
The knitting of this sweater went slower than I would like despite the fact that the yarn is dk weight, a lot thicker than that I used last time. Besides the several attempts before I got the right gauge, the stitch pattern is a double knitting one. The knitted fabric is thicker but not bulky. With the many YOs, it is going to use up a lot more yarns too.
I am doing something new this time:
I am putting stitch markers in important places, like Row 50 or end of armhole decrease. I am hoping this would help when seaming time comes.
Working with the Lana Grossa Filati patterns, I can't help but feel how well-written most American knitting patterns are! Seriously, I didn't know which was the right side until I completed 10 rows of the pattern. Besides, the way this pattern indicated stitch decrease/increase required some code breaking skills! Or I am just not accustomed to it?
