The bad news was that Calann was off a stitch in her Poncho Air Lux knit with Air Lux (Fingering: 70% Rayon, 30% Wool, 328 yards). The good news was that she missed a stitch from her lifeline so it was easy to fix.
I checked the gauge of her sweater before we helped her rip it out. Then I re-entered the updated gauge and fit specifics to reflect her smaller self and different gauge. We also agreed on choosing an hourglass silhouette. All of her previous customfit sweaters had an hourglass silhouette.
Cornelia began ripping out her sweater. It was slow going and one by one we all put down our knitting and took turns helping her rip out her sweater to lessen the pain. Many hands make light work.
The (unspoken) goal was to send her home with a revised pattern and yarn to begin again versus her having to rip it out on her own. We are a family and that’s what families (of knitters) do.
Eileen began a Building Blocks square with the Blue Sky Fibers Multi Cotton ((Worsted: 100% Cotton, 100 yards). It looks great! We were both pleased with the outcome. The stitch definition was very clear.
Kudos to Allison who not only finished her Odele Top, she remembered to wear it for show and tell. If you haven’t knit this sweater, I totally recommend it. The shaping and fit are excellent. The drape of the yarn is lovely. Berroco Mykonos (DK: 66% Flax, 26% Nylon, 8% Cotton, 142 yards.)
Today she had to pick up the stitches around the neckline of her Easy Folded Poncho in Anzula Cricket (DK: 80% Merino, 10% Nylon, 10% Cashmere, 250 yards).
I suggested she use an app called Knit Evenly to figure out the spacing of the stitches. This is what the computation looks like when done.
