Progress Report on the Big Sweater April 25, 2011

Filed under: Knitting,Sweaters,Yarns — Janet @ 5:32 pm

I’m trying to assess my progress on the big sweater.  I think I am on course and that the decreases on the yoke are o.k.  I’ll just keep going round and round decreasing 8 stitches every other row.  The directions I’m using say decrease until all the sleeve stitches are eliminated.  At present the sleeve stitches number about 60 on each arm/shoulder.  So I have quite a bit of knitting still to do.  I like the Socrates yarn I am using.  The plain colour is Socrates 30% baby alpaca, 30% merino woool, 20% bamboo, 20% nylon.  The colour strand could be Regia or Opal, which are sock yarns.  They are mostly wool with a bit of polyamid (a synthetic nylon?)
