Ravelympics – Finally Knitting

I feel like I’m finally making some progress on my Ravelympics project. Over half of the fibre is now spun and I have a pound of 3-ply Aran weight yarn.

I cast on the band of the Fog Sweater, but frogged it a few inches in because the band was curling. It has been a while since I’ve knitted such a wide rib and forgot how much long tail cast on can curl. I cast on again with German Twisted Long Tail cast on and it is looking a lot better. The band is done and I’m about to start the endless 1×1 rib of the body.

    It looks fantastic, I love that green. Unfortunately, your shop was already empty when I visited it after the last update. Perhaps I am more lucky next time.

    Very interesting…I didn’t know that the cast-on type affected the roll factor in stockinette/wide rib. Thanks for the tip, David.

    Oh, and the sweater is going to be awesome - that colour is great!
