I am aware that there is mass crinklage at the bottom...I think it's the way the cables are started, you make a couple of the cable strings (I mean, come on, hat are they called? The individual cable bits that get moved around?!) by increasing a bit, so that could well have a bit to do with it.
Just past the Arm hole shaping. My god, this piece is in dire needs of a good blocking...I hope that'll neaten it up at least a little bit!...When it's stretched out over my body, though, it looks really cool, alot neater and less homemade...No-one will be insecting it anyways, so that's alright.
Close-up of silly mistake. You can't really notice it unless you know its there. I hope. If you look in the top left corner of the pic, one of the twisty cable bits looks a little mangled. I don't know what's wrong with it thoguh, I didn't leave anything out or twist it the wrong way or anything..?
I've deicded for sure that I'm going to do the back plain, mostly because I think that the way this sweater is, the cables on the back would just be over-kill. Also, I'm fearing bordem. Knit ADD. But then, masses of plan stockinette stitch might push me right over the edge...At least I dn't have to concentrate to do it, though. With this cable, although it's fairly intuitive, you do need to be either cabling or doing something else, you can't do both.
If you've read the comments from the previous post, you'll know what I'm about to discuss...If not, here you go:
That's such a shame about your sleeve - did you perhaps miss a section of the instructions? It might be an idea to write down each "step" in language you can understand on a new piece of paper, and cross them off as you've done them, that way you can keep track of your progress, and work out any tricky spots in the pattern before you start. Also, about the neckline, have a look at your Rogue pattern for the V-neck cables, as they might give you an idea as to how to split the cables. Otherwise, draw up a cable chart (look at the rogue pattern again to see how she's done this) and then take out the section for the V/round neck and see what you're left with cablewise. Hopefully I'm making sense...
Well, that's what was relevant to what I'm about to say:
I read through the pattern again, full this time, not just reading the bits I wanted to. I now know what I did wrong. With the sleeve that is. The details are boring, but basically, I didn't read the pattern right. While reading throught the pattern, I discovered that on both the front and back, all stitches are left live. Around the neck, that is. Because you do a garter stitch edging. So, I'm going to just use an odd short row type method...I'll just stop knitting some stitches for the shaping... =)
I'm off to the city (I know, I should be in school, but there's this Aquatics excursion and I didn't want to have to be running around in the cold, surrounded by a bunch of squealing girls thrusting their barely covered breasts in every which way.. I've got better things to do. So do they...! I'm not always so blunt.) with, you guessed it, Talia! I honestly do have other friends. But, Talia is crafty, and I have to buy a gift for Chantals birhday. Which is today. But we're getting together on Saturday.
