Destination South Park Henley, Day 5

Sleeve one is finished. Sleeve two should be finished by day 7 and hopefully joining row completed.

A word here about the “design” process. I’m using guidelines and percentages from The Sweater Workshop by Jacqueline Fee. I worked a four inch swatch with size US 7 needles. After washing and wetblocking the swatch, I figured out my gauge. I use the measurements on my “Saturday” sweatshirt which is the one that I find the most comfortable. Using my gauge, my measurements and the percentages from the book, I determined how many stitches to cast on. The stitch count for the chest measurement is used to calculate stitches needed for upper sleeve. I measured my wrist and then measured body ribbing to number of sleeve stitches to cast on.

One of my knitting friends had the “frogs” tonight at knit night. Last time she had them I caught them. I’m hoping that won’t happen. I’m running pretty much on schedule on this project. I’ll be adding weaving and spinning back into my schedule tomorrow. They took a back seat to Christmas knitting for a while.

Till next time, no frogs, no tinks, just knits.
