The last 4 sweaters I've worked have have been in finer yarn than this. 3 of them had 10+ inches of positive ease. All required shaping, tracking charts or both.
This little thing though, in light aran weight on 6 mm needles will have only a wee bit of positive ease (<1") on 142 stitches.
The thing grows appreciably between commercial breaks and sitting down for a single cup of tea or coffee easily yields an inch of added length by the time I take my last, still hot, sip!
Its also lovely working on something that isn't wooly wool but still carries a hint of warmth about it as our cool spring weather persists.
It feels like there's time to finish and wear it before any full-on heat arrives - 'talk about motivation!
Yup. Rounds and rounds and rounds of satisfying, soul-soothing, productivity out of stolen moments and down time.
Do you ever feel sad for people who don't knit?
