dear goneknitsup, Knitalin would be a very welcome part of my knitting life. save some for me if you find any
The rib is very...obnoxious? it looks and feels good, but it's a bi'ch getting it done. I motivate myself by getting all competitive and speed-knitting my way through it all.
What kept me awake, though, was the shaping of the front, with lots of Wrap-and-turns. It was lots of complicated fun. I think i re-designed the back mostly bc i thought it looked wack having only the front in Stockinette, like a little stockinette island in the middle of all that rib.
Lesson to be learned: dont re-design without re-measuring. as i said, it turned out way big.
Thanks for the advice!
