In which the knitter tidies up
Lookie! Lookie! What cute little cuffs on the sleeves!
Now all she needs is a
collar neckband (don’t want to scare you) and a few more inches down the bottom.
It’s lovely getting rid of the extra balls of yarn and the cables from the sleeves. I thought of picking up the neck now to get that PITA out of the way, but cable. I also wove in all the ends thus far and trimmed them off. Feels like a big, scary bit of finality, that snip.
Some of those few more inches have been knit. It was such a pleasure to get back to real knitting in the round. It was so effortless that for a brief moment I considered making it a dress. And that would make so much sense because I wear the heck out of dresses.
I don’t know where to stop though. This yarn does tend to relax a bit when it is washed and I don’t know how to take that into consideration. I can do the math, but it doesn’t help when you’re looking in the mirror. I decided to knit narrow ribbing like on the sleeves, so that will add an inch, which is hard enough to imagine.
The drama of it all is so overwhelming.
