All right, I'll warn you right off- there aren't any pictures with this post. This is for two reasons: I am poor and do not have a digital camera, and the thing I'm working on isn't done yet because I have the attention span of a flea. ( Collapse )
Applied I-cord, while a pain in the ass (I HATE picking up stitches...especially along decreases and suchlike) isn't so hard, though I'm not sure I'm doing it right (essentially, for my 4-stitch i-cord, I've been knitting 3, slipping 1, knitting the one I've picked up, and passing the slipped stitch over), but as long as it works, I'm happy.
However, I have made some mistakes- especially in one place where I accidentally was unpicking an entire row
of knitting from the shoulder-area and then had to graft it all back together.
I really don't see what the issue is with Kitchener. I don't find it all that difficult or hair-pulling-inducing. Admittedly, I'm probably going to have to keep on going online to remember how to set it up, but otherwise it's just another way of sewing things together. :;shrugs::
Anyway. Now for finishing the darned thing and then doing homework. Joy homework.
EDIT: ANGER! Freakishly Large Head- 1, Sweater- 0. Just tried it on. Apparently anything beyond complete nothingness around the neckline makes it too small for my head. ARRRgh. Anyone got any advice? By this point I'm just thinking of threading through some yarn, tying the damn thing off and throwing it in the wash.
