Strange things are afoot at the Circle K...

I have about six rows of ribbing left and I'll be ready to move on, though I plan on wet blocking this first just to be sure it's going to be the right size.  My swatches bloomed quite a bit with a block so I'm being extra cautious.  I think it would kill me to finish this sweater and not like it. 

I'd error on it being a bit small, too, considering the addition of the button bands.


That's what I was thinking.  I figure that there's a little bit of flex in how wide I can make the button bands if I need a little more width across the front.  Since I'm making one of the larger sizes I don't think it would mess up the proportions too much to add just a little.

Here's another progress photo:



I have another 2 increases to make before it's time for the yoke.

That looks really lovely!  I really like the color. 

I finished the garter rib and did a block and the width appears to be perfect (whew!).  My row gauge was larger than the one called for in the pattern when I swatched but somehow ended up smaller in the actual knitting and blocking so I put it back on the needles and I'm adding another inch or so of ribbing. 

I guess the thing that I'm really learning with this project is that my swatches are guides but I had better not follow them blindly.  My knitting always loosens up on a larger scale so even a sizeable swatch is not going to be perfect for me.  Checking the size/gauge during the knitting is going to be my new MO.

How's everybody doing?  I am finally, finally done with the body (I think--I may have to add a little length after I block this piece).

I'm using the WEBS yarn, but they sent me the wrong color.  I decided just to keep it because I liked it and I'd been having second thoughts about the cables in a dark color. 
So I'm using light sage instead of lichen.
