I'm getting an early start. I spent the morning measuring the swatch and running figures:
This thing is knit side-to-side and my row gauge is WAY off. I'm hoping that gravity will fix the problem (it's knit with alpaca/tencel blend, which traditionally does have a lot of 'hang' and drape to it). This should be interesting.
Wasting no time, I cast on for the sleeve:
As you can see, I've got the hem (the stockinette bit) and a bit of the sleeve itself done. One good thing, my mother-in-law has short arms. So this should go pretty fast. I hope.
Official Strikke-along signup starts September 1. Anyone got a suggestion for a button?
