Short and sweet this week. I've been gift knitting.
I'm making the child's placket neck pullover (rav) from the purl bee. man, that name is a mouthful. i'm using DIC Classy in Shiny Moss and #7 KP options. my yarn is heavier than the original, so i'm knitting the 12-month size and it's coming out around the size 2-4 dimensions.
i'm alternating skeins which is super annoying on circs, but thankfully it is preventing any dreaded pooling. a bunch of ravelry projects suggested that the body and arms are too short as written, so i'm adding an extra inch or so and hoping for the best. before i looked it up i did think the proportions seemed kind of weird. i was thinking to myself, "are kids really this wide and squat?" apparently most of them are not.
i knit the body and one sleeve. hopefully i can finish this up by the end of the week.
