Orkney has commenced!
Finally! Sometimes I just get paralyzed with the whole casting on for a new project thing. So....I started with a sleeve....the shades used are lovely - the combinations are different....and although I am a very conservative dresser....I am really quite excited about this sweater. I think it is going to be so different from my other "fair isle" cardigans.
I am knitting the sleeve in the round - on 3.25 mm bamboo needles. I'll probably switch to two circulars when I can. It's going relatively quickly......
The front no button band look is still stumping me. Do I knit this sweater in pieces and go for the whole vintage sweater vibe?
OR, do I do my usual thing and convert it to knit in the round - and add front bands for the buttons and button holes.
Only time will tell. Right now I'm enjoying the knit.
for the LOVE of ROWAN,
