i didn't get too much done over the weekend due to laziness. but, since the start of the week i've gotten back on track.  i was worried that it would look ridiculously stretched around the boob area, but it's not too bad...easy peasy from here on out.

one question, though, i'm worried about the way the collar looks. it kind of stands up and doesn't lay really flat.  this will sort itself out once the sweater is complete, correct?

I would think so, because the sleeves would pull it down some, possibly.


I finished the body, but now the I'm looking at I, I think the neckline is to big, So, the sleeves may end up being bound off closed, and given to my sisters toys as a sleeping bag or something.   Undecided

If you wanted to knit it on chunky needles I would just make a gauge swatch and do the math. So figure out how many stitches there are per inch and calculate how many inches it is across the back, sleeves, front, etc. I dont think it would be too much of a difference technique wise.

Does anyone have any ideas of how to keep track of your rows. I drop my sweater & pick it up a LOT & need an easier way of remembering if I am on a regular or increase row instead of keeping track on a paper.

Colour coordinated stitchmarkers, crochet type ones that you can clip on to a stitch and leave there?  Maybe you could place some to show where your increase sections begin and end.  You could make a note of what each marker means and maybe even pin the note somewhere at the beginning of your work out of the way.
