I finished the body and today I’m hoping to get started on the sleeves. I haven’t worked out the math for those yet so I’m not sure if I’ll actually get to do any knitting today, but I’m hopeful.
I like how the body turned out, but it’s not entirely what I planned. I was over cautious with the neckline because I didn’t want it to be restrictive after I add the neck band and now it’s a bit deeper than what I intended. I like it despite that, but it means that I can’t play around with a funnel neck like I was hoping to. Funnel necks have been on my brain lately even though I’m fairly convinced that I’m not built right to pull one off. I had been planning on putting one of the sweater to see what it looked like and then ripping back and doing a normal ribbed neck band.
I really need to come up with a name for this sweater. I was thinking of naming it after a character from Nero Wolfe because I was watching A&E’s Nero Wolfe when I sketched and swatched for this, but Lily Rowan is kind of the only female character in those. Any suggestions would be welcome.
