more shades of green... and a little rubyFriday, March 07, 2008
Things were grey all day. So, my photos of Ruby managed to change from one shade of green to another. And I actually don't think that either photo depicts the true shade. The photos also stink, so bear with me. They were the only thing I had in mind for the last day of green week.
I really wanted to show how this sweater is constructed. It is worked from right to left, instead of from bottom to top, or top to bottom. And for that reason, I am so enjoying this pattern. The body is one piece. You bind off in two places, and then cast back on, for the armholes.
Can you see where it is going? I will just continue around the back, bind off, then back on, for another armhole, and continue to the end. Then knit the sleeves. Doesn't seem like much, huh? The cable pattern is easy to follow, again if your mind doesn't wander. However, unlike the tangled yolk, it is very easy to see exactly where you are in the pattern, and to catch your (my) mistakes early.
