Almost done being Wicked

As you can see, Wicked is about 1/3 of a sleeve short of being finished (and a few thousand yarn ends). Yesterday I finished the first sleeve which gave me the number of rounds to knit for the second sleeve. Its amazing how just having a number in my head I'm able to knit faster. This hasn't been a slow sweater to knit, although you'd never believe it from reading my blog. The biggest thing to slow me down has been finding a time when I can try it on to figure out what to do next. I tend to work on it in little spots during the day and changing clothes, measuring where I am and where I'm going, and then getting dressed again doesn't work in those little bits of time. On the other hand, since I was able to double check the fit as I went, I know this will fit the way I want it to - no surprises when I finish. I should be able to finish the knitting today and I hope to get the ends woven in and get it blocking - it desperately needs blocking.

I've enjoyed knitting this pattern and I think I'll probably wear the finished sweater quite a bit. The only things I would note about the pattern are to double check the number you cast on for the neck - the twisted rib is an 8 stitch repeat, not a 4 stitch repeat (you might have to change your cast on number depending on your size to have a number divisible by 8), and definitely try the sweater on as you go like they recommend. That way you can make sure its fitting the way you want it to. Otherwise, its a nicely written pattern, easy to follow and understand and I think the finished sweater is pretty cute. Next time you see it, it will be finished and not a moment too soon - I'm getting tired of coming up with post titles for this thing! Have a great weekend!

It is amazing how fast Wicked is working up. I love that once the second sleeve is knit, the sweater is finished.
