The Blank Canvas sweater is doing much better. I’ve finished the main part of the body of the 40″ size, and the fit is much, much better. (Though I’m definitely lifelining the crap out of everything so I can start over at any one point, at will.)
I’ve started out on the first sleeve, so here’s hoping my calculations to make it long sleeved work.
I’ve also cast on the Roisinis hat/cowl by Emily K. Williams, using Swan Island Natural Colors Merino finger, in the Beetroot colorway. This is actually not the pattern I’d referenced in my last knitting notes entry, because I couldn’t get this yarn to swatch appropriately – it’s actually light fingering weight, and much too fine. Fortunately, I’m working off a decent Paypal credit balance, so I was able to find a Plan C for a hat for this winter.
