So I’m a little slack on getting my finished pics up. Heck never mind up I just took them yesterday Cobblestone was a joy to knit. Its the first sweater i’ve done in the round, first yoke, knitting on sleeves first construction of this kind. I loved it. If all sweater patterns should we written this way I’d have a few more finished sweaters let me tell ya. The only thing I’m not crazy about it the seam up the back of the yoke but I can live with it.
I must say I was a little scared when I realized *well into the yoke* that I was knitting the smallest size when I should have been knitting the second size up. I briefly thought of frogging and starting again but they I thought “Well I’ve knit an entire sweater already I may as well finish it off and someone else can wear it if its too small.” I’d had Moose try it on while I was knitting and it was rather snug. After casting off I immediately soaked it and blocked. The soaking was what it needed, talk about stretchy yarn!! It blocked beautifully and it just the right size for Moose.
