I'm at the point of knitting the (separate) front bands on my pink sweater, but it means a lot of measuring and sewing up as I go along. I got a little bored with it, but I wanted to "save" my Winnie sweater for the trip. So yesterday morning I cast on for Ava:
This will be an excellent project for those times when I need something truly mindless and rote: 32 rows of rib, then stockinette straight up to the armhole with no shaping.
There are two versions of this sweater in Rowan 51: Ava features a knit collar, while the collar of St. Raphael is crochet. I'm not yet sure which I prefer!
