I finally found a way to photograph Astor so you can see the windowpane pattern. The way this sweater works is that it is a long stockinette cardy with this windowpane pattern on the right and left sides of the front. And the windowpanes go around the neck to form sort of a shawl collar. I'm almost done with the left side, and will probably start onthe right side tomorrow.
Really enjoying this one!
Interesting discovery: I found a pair of socks that I had knitted yesterday in the yarn room (found them in the yarn room. Obviously they were knitted somewhere else). They're about an inch too short in the foot. But. I can't find any additional yarn (they were knit top down, so conceivably I could open them up and add more toe) (key word=conceivably) so what should I do? Make a mess and open them up and see if I can add a toe in a different yarn? Get 'em wet and stretch the bejeezus out of them? any other ideas?
