Some Progress

I joined the Ms. Marigold vest in the round last night. I wanted to try it on to be sure that 11.5 inches is a deep enough V for my size, but I think I'm going to have to trust the pattern on this one. While the vest is knit top-down, I have yet to figure out how to try on a top that is knit in the round without having it fall off the needles.

But while I may not be able to, Mr. Irish Bear agreed to model for me in exchange for knitting lessons.

We've decided that this blue totally suits him.


  1. I've tried splitting the stitches on two needles and have still had a stitch or two fall off on occasion, so now I just move the back stitches to waste yarn, and hold the front needles so I don't lose anything.

  2. That's a really good idea. I'll have to give that a try next time I make a sweater. Thanks!
