I’ve been wading in the deep end of Mermaid all weekend.
Just a few more inches of knitting and the body will be done!
Yeah, I sucked it up and kept knitting. Watching movies while knitting helps a great deal.
I’ve still got one and a half sleeves to knit on Mermaid after I finish the body — so there’s a long way to go.
I just got my Mermaid kit (colorway 4) as an early Christmas gift! I’ve just started skimming the pattern and I can’t find where it specifies how long the initial i-cord should be before you start picking up all of the front stitches. I am assuming that the length should equal the length of the left front (I’m making the smallest size). Is that correct? What size circulars did you get gauge with on the body?
The initial i-cord needs to be long enough to pick up one stitch for each row of i-cord. The pattern specifices how many stitches you need to pick up along the i-cord — that’s the number of i-cord rows you need to knit.
I got gauge with the recommended needle size.
Lucy demonstrated her spinning position while The King All Remote Controls took photos.
She’s just getting settled in.
And here she is, hunkered down!
And while I was downloading the photos to the computer, I found this one:
It has a certain charm, does it not?
