I knit. A lot. It is not entirely inaccurate to say that knitting is one of my default states. I get grumpy if too much time passes since the last time I had a chance to knit. I am a process knitter, which means that I really don’t care what I’m knitting, so long as I’m knitting. I am the person you see knitting in the park, at the bus stop, in any sort of waiting room, while standing in any sort of line, at the movies / concert / theater. I have, however, generally abstained from knitting at funerals. I do have some self-control.
So, as you may remember, I’ve been working on the Hitofude cardigan. Things were tooling along, and, on Sunday, I got to the second and third tricky bits: Undoing the provisional cast-ons (2), and performing three-needle bind-offs for the sleeves. (The first tricky bit was the provisional cast-ons themselves.)
So, yeah. Finished the sleeves, and read the part of the pattern where it says how many stitches I should have: 290. (more…)
