Instead of doing the triple crochet around the neck as the instructions said, I picked up 75 sts, did two rows of k1p1 ribbing, a row of eyelet (p2tog, yo, rep), then two more rows of ribbing and bound off. I threaded some lavendery (more on the pink side, but not quite pink) ribbon through the eyelets and voila! Ready in advance of the deadline date, and my first FO of the year.
I worked it out, if I knit on this for 45 minutes a day, I can have it finished by the end of March. Yeah, right. So, sometime this spring, I should have it finished.
Cross Your Heart:
I'm not thrilled with all the moss st on the sleeves. I checked the photos in the magazine to see if I had somehow missed it, and they just don't show the sleeves that well, so you don't see all the pock markey moss st up the arms. I am seriously considering changing it to st st, as that is how I had it pictured in my head and I think it will look better.
That's all for now folks!
