(In case you're not already singing along. . . )
I've knit a lot of sweaters over the years.
But I've never knit one sideways before.
Until now . . .
That's me in the corner.
That's me in the spotlight.
Losing my religion. . .
It was kinda weird to knit a sweater from cuff-to-cuff, sideways. I had to wrap my brain around it a few times there . . . on the fly. Row gauge was a huge issue for me (on a sideways project, the stitch gauge determines length; the row gauge the width), so that had me flipped around, too. It's a little like knitting origami.
As I was knitting this sweater, I really liked the "wrong side" better than the "right side" (I blogged about that here) . . . but, in the end, I went with the "right side" out. I tried with the "wrong side." But the seaming was a nightmare. And the decreases/increases didn't looks so hot from the "wrong side" either.
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try
That was just a dream . . .
