Bang Out a Revolution


#590

Finished the ribbing last night on #3 needle and it looks perfect! On to the sleeves…


#591

That’s so lovely! I love all your mods–the open neckline is such a cool idea. Way to go! Have fun blocking–I love blocking.


#592

Looks beautiful Emz!!!


#593

Thanks for your encouragement, Ann!:grin:


#594

I’m not participating in the Bang Out, but was reading the thread today and found your video links for the German Short Row. I’m about to do some W&Ts on my Fernet Branca sweater, and will use this T&W technique rather than the W&Ts. Thank you so much for sharing this!


#595

Good idea to line button bands. :blush:


#596

All the beautiful sweaters! Mine is slow going as I had not realized the mobility I lost after carpal tunnel release surgery. Just getting to the short rows but still hoping that the stockinette will go faster than the cables.


#597

Looks beautiful!!!
Speed doesn’t matter… just enjoy the knit & take care If yourself.


#598

Why not bang out a second sweater? Or at least try! I’m goi g with Calligraphy, but in the round with long sleeves! Using dovestone dk- which unfortunately has been discontinued?


#599

Ahhhhhhhh! I have spilled coffee on my Calligraphy cables! Have patted between two water soaked towels which has got most of it, but two spots are still darker. Should I soak now (at dividing for sleeves stage) or wait until finished? Does coffee permanently stain wool/ linen?


#600

I’m thinking the sooner the better. Even if that delays the knitting a bit :open_mouth:. I think the staining is somewhat dependent on the make up of your yarn, but coffee can stain.


#601

Did you go down a needle size for the hem?


#602

I’m doing the Capelet too. I am assuming I can just keep going if I try it on and want it longer. I’m not there yet but I’d either do the math and write down the added rows or…depending how I think it would look, switch to stockinette or seed stitch. Any thoughts anyone?


#603

I love what you’ve done! Looks beautiful!


#604

Thanks. I thought working the capelet longer in stockinette would work. Just wondered about any additional increases.


#605

Looks great!


#606

I finished the first sleeve with the cable motif added. I wanted a roomier sleeve so only decreased 3 times. I may use the buttons I have laid out. Onto sleeve#2. Great adventures for a snowy day. A roaring fire, snow out the window, a cup of tea, Louise Penny audiobook and my knitting…all I need is the beagle curled up beside me. Happy knitting everyone!


#607

One sleeve done / to go.


#608

Yes, I did. I’m happy with the results.


#609

Continuing the discussion from Bang Out a Revolution:

Just looking for verification here…have finished the yoke on Row 47 which is WS row, so do I purl the next row (rs) ? Also, a little confused when it says change to stockinette stitch…I assume that’s what the back neck rows are?

This is my first sweater and I don’t want to mess up and get frustrated! Thanks for the help!
