It's about this note or that note, which sounds better?
While most of my plane-car-and-other vacation knitting was occupied by the Chuppah, I did have a chance to knit a little on the Retro Ribs for my bethrothed. It's a truely lovely pattern, as so many of you had recommended. Easy to knit, but still interesting. Fun. And even though it's shown in a solid-color on the samples, it's really showing off the varigated Koigu very well.
So far the only modification I've had to make is that I did have to add an extra repeat (8 stitches) to accomodate the large feet of a certain someone. The pattern claims that there is much stretchiness within it, and there is, but not quite enough to make a men's large.
In other news, I'm still working on sorting out the sizing thing for Ribby Cardi. But in the meantime, is anyone out there a size 34"-36" and under 5'2" and want a (ever so slightly) fulled Ribby Cardi? Yours for the asking; just email me.
