I confess that I was too excited to wait until October to start my sweater. Here’s how far I’ve gotten:
The stripe pattern will be two stripes spaced two rows apart. Each group of stripes is 6 rows apart. I’m planning to continue the stripe pattern all the way up and on the sleeves as well. It keeps the endless stockinette stitch from getting too boring. I’m planning to have the body finished in the next two and a half weeks so I have time to work on the sleeves and put on the finishing touches. It’s going to be a month full of knitting!
