Heads down learning all about alterations and look. According to this book, the slash and spread method (b) for FBA is not the most efficient. The seam alteration (d) keeps your front length the same.

So I went up a needle size and the fabric shrank a whole inch out of 8. Should be 8 but now I just have 7. Will this block out or should I go up another needle size?

How sweet is this "lice" pattern? I hit gauge on stitches but super off on rows. Will need to reknit with a smaller needle. πŸ˜„

#gallowaycardigan is next. Feel like this will be nice and challenging. First time steeking. First time sweater with colorwork. I had two extra skeins left after #bellowscardigan of the saturated green and it's going to fit perfectly. Now to swatching. πŸ˜„

A little knitting before work. I bought this one skein of yak/silk/merino at a knitting show in Amsterdam last year. It's lace so knitting double but the feel of the fabric. Glorious! ☺️
