My first FO of the new year is a UFO that has been sitting in my knitting basketÃ‚Â since May waiting for me to seam it up and knit the sleeve cuffs.Ã‚Â I finally broke down last night and finished it while watching Bride & Prejudice.
pattern:Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Molly from Junior Knits by Debbie Bliss
yarn:Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Mission Falls 1824 Wool
needles: Ã‚Â Clover Bamboo US7&8
cast on:Ã‚Â Ã‚Â May 2006Ã‚Â cast off:Ã‚Â Jan 2nd
notes:Ã‚Â I liked this pattern over all.Ã‚Â I would knit it again.Ã‚Â I wasn’t thrilled by the huge seam under the arms, because you are seaming the cast-on edge to the cast-off edge.Ã‚Â I made one change to the pattern; instead of picking up the stitches and knitting the ribbing on the arms then seaming, I seamed the side/arms then picked up stitches for the ribbing and knit it in the round.Ã‚Â That way I didn’t have to worry about reversing the seam for the turned back cuff.
