It’s Friday! Woo-hoo!
Question du Jour
A new blog reader (Hi Dennis!) asks:
“How do I keep the “line” that forms between my dpn’s when knitting in the round on dpns ?”
Okay . . . um . . . don’t hate me, but . . . um . . . I never get a line that forms between dpns.
But I do know what you mean — that line of loose stitches that makes it obvious that you were knitting on dpns, right?
I can tell you this — I do consciously tighten up on the first stitch on each dpn when knitting socks. I’ve also heard that using 5 instead of 4 dpns helps alleviate the problem — I always use 5 dpns.
Any of you guys have any other ideas?
Finished the first sleeve:
And I’ve started the second sleeve. I haflheartedly attempted to phootgraph the start of the second sleeve, but kept getting blurry shots, so gave up. Hint: it looks like the first sleeve.
After I finished the first sleeve and cut open the second armhole steek, I did try it on — just to see how it’ll fit. Looks good! Sleeves aren’t too long and on me and it’s a nice tunic length. Too bad I won’t be wearing it for real until next winter. But weather permitting, I’ll be puttin’ on the Hank for a photo shoot upon completion.
