New project

This is the knitting equivalent of having eyes bigger than your stomach, but I started a sweater for me to use up stash yarn! It’s top-down, stockinette, super simple, all the things that could lead to a sweater than I’ll actually wear this decade. So here’s to wild optimism, I suppose. 🙂 Now we just have to hope for speedy fingers (since it’s a DK yarn) and plentiful knitting time.

The gauge swatch – based on this I had to multiply all the pattern parameters by 1.375, which then required changing proportions and shaping slightly so that they’d fit the 4-stitch multipliers. Yikes. Hope I did all of that properly.

As of the end of the weekend, I’m 20 rows in, so while modest it’s still at least SOME sort of accomplishment.
