i have decided that once i get my swift and winder for christmas (hint, hint), i’m going to frog and re-knit kyoto. i’m going to do this for several reasons.
one – as my first sweater it looks like crap when on.
two – it’s all knitted in twisted knit stitches which sorta gives me a headache
three – i’m going to knit it in the style of bella (knit the top section -including the seed stitch neckband – in the round until the armscyes, with a provisional cast-on from which i’ll knit the sash down) and pick up the stitches for the sleeves. this will do the following: reduce seaming to almost none thus evening out the tension and hatred i have of seaming, and give it an overall smoother look.
sniff. bye kyoto. once i (ahem) get the swift and winder.
