A resting spot for what would otherwise be ephemeral miscellany.

Rusted Root before end of raglan increases

Originally uploaded by aruzin

I know that all words and no pictures gets old fast — especially for something that’s shaping up to be mostly a knitting blog — so here’s some color!

I’m less than an inch away from joining under the arms. Because I don’t have a long enough cable, I need to transfer at least half the stitches to a second needle in order to try it on. In fact, in order to really get a sense of how the arms will fall, I need to transfer the arms to separate needles.

All this needle switching is time consuming, but worth the effort; I don’t want to risk joining too soon (and suffering too-tight arm holes) or too late (and sporting saggy sleeves.)
