Leaves and Pi in progress
I got stuck on my leaves pullover. The pattern has a simple drop shoulder, but this type of shoulder is not a flattering shape for me, so I tried to do a different shoulder. The problem is I need to study shoulder construction before I can do this properly and I got stuck. I am going to get unstuck by ripping back below where I tried to "just do it" and then knit the simple drop shoulder that the pattern calls for. It is more important to me to finish this sweater. I will do an in-depth study of shoulder construction soon, as there are patterns I want to knit but have to change the shoulder/sleeve construction.
My puddle of Pi...
I am knitting E. Zimmermann's Pi Shawl pattern using Icelandic yarn and size 8 circular needle. Rather than a shawl, this will be a lightweight afghan for the bed or sofa. It will not be a soft, rub-on-your-cheek type of afghan, but it will be light and warm. I am having fun trying something new. The yarn comes in a wheel and has little to no twist to it. I have not had it pull apart while knitting, but if it did it would be easy to overlap the ends and keep knitting. Fun and easy.
