Jillian”s NaKniSweMo Update

I cropped my head because I had 'not enough tea yet' face

It’s November 22. I still have 2 inches of body knitting, have to decide length and knit sleeves (I’m thinking short like the pattern) and do finishing. I have a good feeling about finishing on time.

The pattern, Goodale, is fantastic. Easy to follow and fun to knit. I’ve learned attached i-cord edging and increasing in the row below from this pattern, and have since passed both techniques on to other knitters. It’s my favorite part about knitting, the constant learning and teaching.

I’m still having issues with gauge and had to monkey with frequency and numbers of increases for the body. I think it may prove to be a little big under the arms, but I can live with that. I’m really excited about sewing the front detail to make the incredibly groovy pockets.

How’s your sweater coming? Have you checked in with the Ravelry group? Some people are done.

*Spread the joy!*
