WIP Wednesday 1: Idlewood
This is my 1st WIP Wednesday and I am hoping it would the first of many.
I started a sweater 4 days ago. It's called Idlewood over at Ravelry. I was attracted to it because of the huge cuddly-looking cowl. The sweater uses 850 yards for the small size, and I happen to have 4 skeins of Cascade 220 Heathers yarn in this beautiful cranberry pink color.
So far I've finished the cowl, using size 10.5 needle. Switched to size 10 needle for the decreasing for the body/neck but it is looking weird. The stitches are too sparse from one another. So I'm thinking it is because my needle is too long (29 inches) for this decrease part so the stitches get stretched out. Kinda weird that the pattern does not specify to switch to a shorter needle so maybe my theory is wrong.
But at this point I think I will get a shorter 10 inch needle and try to knit the decrease part with it.
