Jumper Progress

Lacey Sleeve

That was my second attempt at the sleeve, the first attempt didn’t go very well. I kept dropping the end stitch at the right hand side, I don’t know why, maybe I didn’t have the yarn in the feeder properly. Anyway, when I tried knitting it a second time it knitted up just fine and didn’t drop any stitches.

I pinned the sleeve to the rest of the jumper to see how it looks and I’m quite pleased with it

Sleeve Pinned In Place

I should get the second sleeve knitted one evening this week so hopefully next weekend I’ll be able to finish it off.

I’m so happy with the lace carriage, it’s working great.

Talk to you later,

Susan.

    >Looks great Susan! Glad the lace carriage i working realy well for you. Will you have enough of the navy to finish the other sleeve – is this that bargain cone from the charity shop?

    >Was this lace pattern a lace that transferred both directions in one row? If so how does the lace carriage do the transfer, with the yarn in the carriage or out of it?

  12. Susan says:

    >Hi Cristel. No, it only transferred in the one direction on each row so the yarn stayed in the carriage all the time.
