The Back of Oblique
Here is what I have so far on the back of Oblique. I'm part way through the waist decreases at this point. Once again, once you get a few rows worked in the various stitch patterns so you can read your knitting, you can zip right along and it knits pretty quickly. I'm really pleasantly surprised by this design - I thought it would be one that needed more attention, but really its pretty easy to work on autopilot.
I need to weave in the ends I've got so far because according to Ramius (who has been sitting in my lap while I knit), they are very irritating and keep making him twitch. It's so difficult being a cat around here!
I can tell already that when I block the pieces of this sweater out, I will be blocking the ribbing of the fronts and back stretched out. I don't like longer length sweaters with ribbing that pulls in and as you can see in the picture, this is pulling in. I think I'll be happier and it will be more flattering if it just falls straight. I'll let the ribbing draw in on the sleeves so I don't have cuffs flapping around.
