Do You Like Cotton Candy?

Then this one’s for you!

I am using the top down raglan calculator wheel to do this sweater, and have already found several problems. The number of cast-on stitches leads to a ridiculously large neck. But it tells you to do ribbing right away, which I did not do (note the cowl neck). I’ll have to try it just as written for an experiment, I suppose, before the class in Jan. And the stitch counts are off when you divide. You have to add 3 to each number of body and sleeve stitches to get them right, and this is for every set of numbers on the wheel. Sigh.

The yarn is very nice. 55% cotton, 45% acrylic. Good crisp feel, not nasty at all.

Anyway, look closely, I am using my wonderful-from-Carla stitch markers for the first time. Cool, huh?

I think since my stash numbers look so bad, I will concentrate on finishing balls today. Hopefully dh will have a good call load today, and I can get the cone of cotton I am working on knocked off. That will be 7 balls right there.
