Every Back Needs A Front - Or Two
Houston, we have Fronts! Or at least the beginning of Fronts. I finished the back of Order and Chaos over the weekend and began the fronts last night. I'm waiting to block the back so I can do it with the fronts, which is why there is no picture of the back. I'm knitting both fronts at the same time and I'm not reversing the cabling. I thought about it, but since the back is asymmetrical, it didn't seem to demand that the fronts be mirror images of each other. Also, since the design is based on tree bark, asymmetry seems to fit with that too. The weather here is getting cool enough that I could wear this now, so I'm trying to really get some work done on it. I'm enjoying the design quite a bit. There are 4 Right Side rows of cable crossings and traveling stitches that I have to pay attention to, but then there's a section where you just knit the knits and purl the purls. Its a nice balance of both concentration and the speed you can knit the thing at. I have no idea if that makes any sense, but we'll chalk it up to Monday and not enough caffeine yet.
