Top Moments 2018
Did I miss any of your favorite/most controversial/helpful/educational/etc. blog posts this past year?
On my current Project, the Briyoke Sweater by Stephen West, I had almost finished the raglan shaping when I realized I should probably count stitches to make sure I was on-track for setting up for the body and I realized I had made a mistake early on in the raglan increases.
The increases should have looked like this:

<sigh> – But fortunately, I love knitting brioche, so I ripped back to the lighter section of knitting and re-started the raglan shaping.
At the same time, I decided to make the dark stripe at the bottom of the yoke a single color and switched the green yarn to be the fore-ground color on the raglan and body of the sweater and I’ve moved to one needle and it’s moving much faster. I’m liking it all much better, so everything turned out well.
