I can see this project is turning into a slog, even though I am now working in the round having got to below the armholes. I still have a long way to go to reach the end. My knitting is much smoother now that I am just knitting and I don’t have the purl rows to mess up my gauge.
The bottom third is knitted in the round and looks more even. I wonder if I was just purling it would look as even. I should try that sometime.
I like knitting from the top down as you can try the project on as you go, which is why it doesn’t have any needles in it currently. I can also add the sleeves and see what the top looks like.
It is very girly, which is not “me” at all. I love it despite the cuteness. A disadvantage of top down is that I now have to slog all the way to the bottom. At least this top has a pattern at the bottom. As I failed to alter the neck patterns (which did not seem to matter), I wonder what I will manage for the bottom. Anyone know how to turn lace patterns upside down?
Just to prove that I am not only knitting the fluttery top, here is June’s dishcloth:
I know it is July and I know I’m behind. I need more time…
