'Round, and 'round, and 'round she goes...
I'm working on the body of the Chinese Lace Pullover now. I've got about 10 inches total knit on it and the pattern says to go to 14 inches for my size before I divide for front and back. I will probably go a little bit longer than 14 inches (maybe 16 inches), just to counteract the potential length shrinking I found in the gauge swatch, and because a little extra length means less fussing where the sweater and jeans meet (and you know what I mean).
I have two skeins of the yarn set aside for the sleeves and while I know I won't need all of the skeins for the sleeves, I might go ahead and knit the sleeves, so I know how much yarn I have left over for the body. I'm thinking about starting that today, but first I have to wind the skeins into balls. I will probably knit the sleeves flat so I can do them both at the same time.
I'm still loving this yarn and I love the colors of it. I've always loved looking at hand dyed yarns, but they don't always knit up nicely. I don't like the weird pooling you tend to get with a lot of hand dyed yarns, but this yarn isn't doing anything strange with the colors. I'm beginning to think that I might have found a yarn that I'll be happy using for sweaters. I've stuck with socks with the handdyed multicolored yarns before, because the pooling doesn't bother me on socks.
