…wait. But just until tomorrow. The Four Day Sweater KAL – at least for me – starts tomorrow and continues through Tuesday. I’ve swatched (and woot! I’ll be using size 7’s!) and planned out my modifications (I’m adding a few rows and a few stitches).
I even did a little “speed swatching” to figure out how much time I’ll be knitting over the next four days. I’m going to use about 775 yards of yarn.
Sleeves in the round on double points is slow going. This swatch was six yards on size 4 dpn’s.
Flat stockinette is a little better. This swatch was six yards on size 5 straights.
This works out to about 16-1/2 hours total … just over 4 hours a day. I can do that!
The body is on size 7 circulars, sleeves on size 7 dpn’s and ribbing on size 5’s (circulars and dpn’s) … I can only hope that second swatch isn’t the one that’s lying.
I’ll be sharing photos on Instagram. Here’s to forward progress only!
Enjoy the long weekend – I’ll be back on Wednesday. Hopefully with a finished sweater!
P.S. the bagels were a huge hit!
