Online Craft Club Show and Tell #30

Well, I’m sad-sack late getting this edition out. For that I apologize. I have revamped my schedule and most of my blogging happens in the evening now. Which works better for the house and family, but maybe not so well for those of you (Hi Mama) who expect this post to come out early. How about I just set it to auto publish bare bones at midnight on Thursdays, so you at least have somewhere to drop a link, and I will come back and edit it when I can get here? Maybe if I get my act together, I can publish it intact at midnight Thursday night. Wouldn’t that be the be all and end all?

As for Skimmer, well, I forgot until yesterday to add knitting into my schedule, and I was ateh short row bust, so it wasn’t like I could pick it up during school and just start going round and round like I had been doing, so. Umm, all I got done was h eshort row bust like i laid out for you two weeks ago, and then to knit back around to the right arm and then purl back to the beginning of the round. We’ll pick up here with some shaping, counting this coming row as row 1. Hold on and read through it, and feel free to ask any questions.

The next measure you will need is the distance from your nipple to your shoulders. Mine happens to be 10 inches (yeah, I’m short) so I know the top of my sweater is 10 inches tall, and I’ll have a 24 inch length of sweater when I am done. You also need to know how wide your shoulders are. Mine happen to be 15 inches, and I’ll be decreasing to meet that measurement. I have to get from 83 to 71 stitches (allowing about an inch of ease), so I’ll be decreasing every 4th row: 1, 5, 9, 13, 17, 21 one stitch on either side of the sweater. AT THE SAME TIME, increase in the middle of the row: every 4th row for a loose cowl neck and every other row for a very loose cowl.

No pictures, this week from me, my sweater looks about the same. I’m still debating which neck line I want, anyway. What have you been working on?

Here’s how to play:

Take a picture of your current project, whatever that happens to be. Or maybe one you recently finished. Or the materials for the one you are about to start. Let’s say materials for a project in whatever state it happens to be in at the time you snap it. On Friday, post the picture and tell us about your project. What you did, or what you are going to do. How much you are enjoying it, or hating it. You know–show and tell.

Just copy & paste the code below the graphic and get crafty with me!

Be sure to come back and leave a comment so we know where to find you!
