taking shape


Now that I'm halfway down the yoke, the toddler sweater is really starting to take shape. With alternating knit rounds, the rib panel is a bit more textured than I had thought originally. And the raglan shapelines are quite a nice tailored detail.

Notice the point protectors at the ends of the needles? All those stitches are threatening to fall off both ends of all 4 needles. Why not switch to a circular needle? Stubbornness, I guess. I just prefer to knit on dpns. About 40 more stitches to add for the yoke - surely to goodness I can jam those on my needles - and then before you know it the sleeve stitches are put aside and I'll have some breathing room again. People who know me, know I'm stubborn. And people who knew my Mom, know that the apple didn't fall far from the tree.
