Done! Child's Placket-Neck Sweater from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson. Size 6-12 months using Manos del Uruguay Cotton Stria in color 203.
I have made this sweater before and it is quite an easy knit. I have not used this yarn before, and though it makes a really pretty, soft fabric, it has absolutely no give (it is cotton, after all) and being Manos, there are no dye lots. So even though I bought enough to finish my project, the top half is different than the bottom half. Of course, I have used Manos before, I know to alternate the skeins every 2 rows. I must have had a brain fart, and with such a tiny project, I was not about to juggle yarn cakes anyway. But another thing I didn't care for with this yarn - my gauge differences showed. I have never run into this problem before, much less did I know that it could happen in this project. I have read that knitting in the round is a tad tighter than knitting back and forth. Well, it's true. I could have gone down in needle size once I got to the placket bit. Ah well. The piece washed well, and 20 minutes in the dryer and it evened out.
I have this sickening feeling that I am getting sloppy with my knitting. Too many projects, deadlines, unfocused knitting time. I need to get it together.
Speaking of which, the gauntlet is thrown. I haven't sat at my loom in weeks and I am itching to get going on my gamp. It's a huge sampler made out of simple carpet warp. The purpose is to learn just about every weaving pattern I can do on my 4 harness loom. Now the question is, do I remember how to wind on a warp?
Hila doesn't tell me to join these things, but I blame her entirely.
