FO: Kureyon Sock Cardigan
This is Design 11 from Noro Catwalk 2 by Jenny Watson. I was excited to finally get to try Kureyon Sock, and I liked working with it. For this project, I made no attempt to control the striping. I grabbed skeins at random as they ran out and always pulled from the center. As for modifications, I made the sleeves about an inch shorter than called for. They are still quite long. I knit the collar in one piece. I have a strict rule about no seams at the back of the neck. Maybe it is not so bad for people with long hair, but I won't tolerate it. When I got to the halfway point I reversed the short row shaping and kept going to the end. If I were doing it again, I would probably work the sleeves in the round and perhaps narrow the upper arm a little. I think this sweater is going to be perfect for throwing on in the evenings when it gets cold.
