The Four Year Sweater
I guess I did ok for my first sweater! My tension got screwy in the yoke/neck area, it is looser than the rest of the sweater. Not sure what happened there. I can clearly see the decrease rounds, and that bothers me. I also don't like the bunching, and don't know why that happened. I was hoping it would be nice and flat like the body. Blocking has helped a lot though.
I made the body longer than sweaters typically are, since the recipient requested it be done that way so when he bends over, .... well, you know!
I am happy this project is done, I learned a lot. Especially that I don't care for knitting sweaters, and most likely will not make another one any time soon.
I made this with Cascade 220 using EZ's percentage method in the round. It was really easy, and I am glad I decided to make the sweater this way, instead of having a bunch of parts to seam up. The underarm seaming was enough for me, even though I love the magic of kitchener stitch.
