One Band

Oblique band detail

Can you contain your excitement? Over the weekend, after carefully washing and blocking all the pieces of Oblique, and sewing them all up, I got one front band on. That's it. I do love this picture though, you can see the way the yarn just glows - I will definitely be using this yarn again (KnitPicks Andean Silk - this is Cream). Oh, and just in case anyone is curious, I don't bind off in pattern, in this case rib. I think it looks sloppy. I bind off purlwise - that way the bind off flips to the back and I think the edge looks neater. Just personal opinion, but I thought I'd mention it in case anyone was wondering.

Why didn't I get more done on finishing this sweater? Well, for the answer to that you'll have to check back tomorrow! Oh, the suspense...

I like the look of the yarn - nice sheen. Will have to look into it.

I have always slavishly followed the instructions to bind off in rib stitch, but you are right; the purl bind off looks much nicer.

Thanks for the tip.
