Tuesday December 5, 2006

while I was sleeping, December stole through the house
like a roaring train...


I'm was going for a New Threads Tuesday but ended up with loose threads instead! OH! How I wish my Grammie would've taught me faster way of knitting - I'm a thrower and most times I think it's just S-L-O-W...

There is a sock knitter on my bus that knits at the speed of light; she is not a thrower. (We won't even mention the SuperSonic Crochet Ladies on the #66 - that's a different story - but man oh man, I'm blown away!)

So, instead of a finished sweater, all I have is a Body & 2 Sleeves.


And, those sleeves are a little(!) different than my first Ariann. In the face of a deadline, I had to make an Executive Decision and VOILA! Those sleeves were bossed around FLAT!

I make faster progress on tight circumferences by splitting the difference. Your mileage might vary, but it is much quicker for me to do a 15 minute seam sometimes than make myself dizzy by slowwwwwly revolving round and round. How do you convert to ze Flat? Simple put, you just add 2 stitches, which become your seaming area - and remember to account for those stitches wherever shaping takes place. With sleeves like these, that is easy peasy, because there is only one area where it matters - when you do the underarm bind off.
