I know I know, I’ve been a bit distracted from knitting. Hard to believe but for a good reason, I’ve been following and blogging about one of my other favorite creative outlets, cooking.
Anyway I am back to work on my Chiton Pullover, yea! I’ve finished the belt, picked up a bunch of stitches and began working on the body of the garment. At this point I’m somewhere between the second and third increase rounds. It’s coming along well and I can only hope that when its all done it actually fits!
I try to have one project on my needles that will teach me something new and this one is it. So far I’ve learned to pick up stitches along a side edge and that doing a M1 (make 1 increase) the second stitch in can be a challenge, though I don’t know why. Maybe slipping the first stitch or knitting the last stitch TBL (through the back loop) on the belt has something to do with it? If anybody has an idea I’d love to hear from you!
So this is what it looks like so far:
More to come…
