Why . . . when I know how much I hate it
1 - back, 2 & 3 - front pieces, 4 & 5 sleeves, 6 - yoke . . . grrrr, arrg
So I started by blocking the front and back. Gotta love the blocking wires, flexible for the neck & straight for the front sides
Next I laid out all the pieces to see if the yoke needed blocking (it did)
Then I decided I couldn't deal, so I worked on the Yoke Pullover (Vogue Winter 2005/06) I cast on a few days ago. I started it at the Park Slope Knitting group on Thursday night, but then totally ripped it out. I decided I had to cast on an extra 10 stitches, like I did for the Pin Up Queen, to go over my hips & then reduce to the original cast on.
The twisted rib makes it slightly more interesting to knit
After a few hours of procrastination, I sewed up the sides, and sleeves, and then reblocked for the yoke.
There is still sits . . . maybe tomorrow
