OK, so polar bears live at the North Pole, penguins at the South Pole. Who cares?
(Thankfully, Caroline looks happier in it than the cat did.)
Here we are in the home stretch of this project! and if I say it myself, it is coming out darned cute! Can't wait to see how it comes out for anyone else. Please do share your version of this project in the comments!
OK, here we are with a cute little sweater body, ready to start on the sleeves. Oh, but first we need to do a little… MATH.
Or, you could decide it was supposed to be a vest all along. I believe I *just about* got the whole body out of one skein of yarn, too, so if you make it a little shorter and edge it in something else… let me know how that works out for ya, k?
OK, we are up to the armhole shaping, yes? (Yes, I know that, more correctly, the bits that sleeves get sewn into are are called armscyes. I am not so pretentious as to need to use unusual words to show how much I know.)
OK, so time to start knitting!
Since I'm going to knit the body in one piece, first thing is to add up the number of sts for the back and both fronts. The second size says, 60 sts for the back and 28 apiece for the fronts. Adding those up in my head, plus two edge sts, gives me 120 total.
Last week I wrote about how I was frustrated with not getting much actual knitting done, and why that has been the case.
So today, we put the money where the mouth is, so to speak, and I have a new "Playing Lessons" project to share with you!
