WIP - top down jacket
Pattern: Weekend Neck Down Jacket by Knitting Pure & Simple
Yarn: Yorkshire Tweed Chunky
I am at the point of binding off the 1x1 rib at the bottom of the body. My research revealed the tubular cast-off to be the best for 1x1 rib, so I am exploring new territory.
After the set-up rows where I knit the knit stitches and slip the purls, I separate the stitches. Knits go on the needle in front and the purls on the back needle.
Now to graft the stitches using the Kitchener method.
It creates a nice finish without a tight line of bound-off stitches.
Next up, knit the sleeves. Then the collar and the button band.
Spinning. Gaining skill a little at a time. I am concentrating on handling the fiber and the wheel at the same time. Later, I will concentrate on the more technical aspects of spinning. This is the BFL that the generous Mr. and Mrs. T. sent with the wheel. I like BFL!
