Back from my Easter break to (sometimes) sunny Northern Ireland, visiting the next generation of socks
And for the first few days, I got quite a bit of knitting done, making good progress on my decimal. Sadly I then got struck down with some kind of lurgy that left me too wiped out even to knit for 5 days. I’d just reached where I want the neck shaping to start (much higher up than the pattern writer has it) and decided this would be a good point to check my calculations were right this time by blocking the work so far.
Whoo hoo! Is pretty much perfect, the blocked measurements are just what I wanted them to be. Another reason for blocking was so I could work out how many stitches to cast on for the sleeves, and I’ve been able to make a start on these while the body is drying.
And now … fanfare ….
