Who’s inner 5-year old doesn’t want to live in Opposite Land? It’s been FO after FO all week, so it’s entirely fitting to end the week with a new cast on. Yay Opposite Land! Anything to keep me from finishing my mini mochi crochet shawl, that Rockefeller I started way bay when, the hitchhiker I impulse casted on last week, or even that project who’s bind off is half finished. I could do just half a row, and have a beautiful, beaded, purple, cashmere shawl but no, I’d rather start something new!!
New is so exciting! I love new! Especially when it’s something fun. Something ridiculous. You may have noticed how much I like knitting ridiculous things.
Like a Freddy Krueger sweater for a little kid! It’s just such a good idea, it has to happen.
The yarn was sitting right *there*. As if that was an accident? Clearly, it was meant to be.
I’m staying true to the look of the original sweater but I’m changing the construction. This is a no brainer as a top down, raglan, pullover. The original is a very fine rib, machine made I’m sure. I’m going stockinette, again, no brainer…in the round, just knit away, making an occasional stripe. Yeah, I got this.
An inch of ribbing, go up a needle size, start the raglan increases. It’s perfect. Who says patterns and gauge swatches and measurements are important? Not me! At least, not yet! Happy Friday :)
