My Bláithín sweater is true to form creeping along ever so slowly. I did make yet another change and learned and used German Short rows which worked out great and got rid of several gaping openings form the turn and wrap method I deplore!
I am presently working on the cast-off edge of the lower body. I am stuck in a thinking stage as I can not figure out why one would cast-off 232 sts. and then pick up 232 for icord. I am going to re-read the pattern and then most likely do an icord bind off instead. Once that is done I will be steeking the front which means cutting the front of the sweater open. Steeking is a method I actually really like and use often. I was hoping to have this sweater done and off the needles before the reverse migration starts. I am doubtful this will happen!
