I had this idea I would save time with the baby's cardigan if I had a pattern that did not call for much sewing up. This one is a bottom up raglan where you do the sleeves in the round then attach them to the body.
It appears that I have knitted on the sleeves so the underarms are at the top and the sleeve cap underneath.
This was not as easy to do as you might think.
Also my seed stitch appears to be punctuated by blocks of mistaken stockinette which I am hoping, because they are so regular, might look like a very progressive pattern. Is there such a thing as an edgy baby sweater?
Maybe not in Nova Scotia.
I'm quitting for the night, not because I think it will look better in the morning but because my dear husband has signed me up for his company's golf tournament tomorrow.
It will be fun he says, just relax and have a good time. No one will care you can't really golf, just a friendly game.
With a bunch of men.
Not likely to be competitive at all.
And the prize for the winners is a trip for two to some place this golfer will never be seeing.
Real casual game.
I was going to be making some sort of an outfit for this event but I have been busy knitting some sleeves in upside down.
So I went and bought a jacket and some pants as Costco as I do not really want to overinvest in this thing.
You didn't know Costco carried golf clothing did you?
Well they don't.
Over and out.
