Clothesline knitting. I am too lazy to knit these separately, so I knit the fronts and back on one long circular at the same time. I am inspired by the green sweater in the Vogue Knitting magazine, but I am making several modifications. Hopefully I will achieve my goal of an oversized, A-line, cable yoke sweater.

It's not lazy to knock out the fronts and back at the same time. It's a great way to make sure that they all come out the same length. Same for working both sleeves at once.

Now if you were *really* OCD, you would have cast on the sleeves and worked them until the difference between their length and the length of the body was taken care of, then cast on the fronts and backs and finished all five pieces at once.

When I was a little girl, there was a woman who lived on our cul-de-sac with five kids: three girls and two boys. These were the days when Red Heart yarn was wool, and decent quality. And before circular needles had come into play.

She made matching sweaters for three little girls. As I recall, she knit all three left fronts at once, all three right fronts at once, all three backs at once. I'm not sure what she did about six sleeves, but I'm thinking that a 60" circ would have been a significant blessing.
