As can be seen by this darling girl with her sunglasses. We will be heading over to Iowa next weekend to see them all. I'll be checking out to see what kind of Fall sweater she is going to be needing!
The pattern has rib and I have done this one before the rib. I like the way the moss stitch doesn't pull up the band. I did cast off with a two size larger needle and could have maybe bound off a little looser, but I believe the Boku yarn is going to do a little stretching when it is blocked.
I chose to make my sweater meet a little closer in the front than the actual pattern, because a) those of us with a belly don't necessarily want it to be hanging out there and b) when I have them open like the pattern, I tend to spend a lot of time pulling on it to bring it closer and/or carry something in front of me.
It is going to be so nice to have one more WIP off of the needles, hopefully later this weekend. And then, no, really, that should be the last of the Summer knitting.
