My Wicked sweater is starting to take shape. On Saturday I finished the neckline. I decided to do 2" ribbing instead of the stitch the pattern called for. I adore ribbing so I think it's going to look great. I still can't believe I'm knitting my very first sweater! If you would've asked me a year ago if wanted to knit a garment my answer would've been no! I really have to say that it's the inspiration of other knitters.
Sunday was extremely cold. The temperature did not hit 1 degree! It was too cold to really do anything outside. Also way too cold and windy to go anywhere. I had the perfect afternoon to get down to some serious knitting. By last night I did 7 repeats of rows a & b. I timed myself and could finish the repeat in 30 minutes. This is the neckline and the start of the body of the sweater.
Here is a different view of the sleeve increases. I love the fact that you knit this sweater from the top down with almost no seaming! Pretty cool! I feel like I'm on a knitting marathon!
