Football Tee

This is where I am on the Knickerbocker Tee I'm making in purple and grey to wear to Friday night games.  I'm actually further along now- about to start the sleeves- but you get the idea.  It's tough to move back to sportweight yarn after working with bulky, but I am appreciative of the stockinette that lets me get back to reading Game of Thrones.




I am a little concerned that the shirttail will curl because things are a bit puckered where I did my short rows and the hem seems a little tight for them.  I tried to reknit the short rows twice to fix this, but it's still happening.  Maybe when I folded the hem over I knitted the bottom together with the next row a little too tightly.  I just didn't have the heart to rip it back and start over for something that may not even be an issue once the whole thing is blocked.  I'll know soon enough.

  1. I'm making the cap sleeve lattice top right now and the beginnings look much the same as yours!

  2. That must be a good sign that I'm on the right track with my short rows. I really think blocking will smooth the bottom out, plus it is all scrunched on a small circular.

  3. Are you loving Game of Thrones?! I'm finally on the 5th book, and while I'm totally engrossed in the story, it'll be nice to change up the tone a bit before the next book (ever) comes out!

  4. I love reading and knitting! I stalled out on GoT halfway through the 4th book. Maybe I'll get back to it someday.

  5. I am- the second book more than the first, even. I just can't take long breaks between reading them or I forget too much of what has happened and who is who.

  6. I love it too. It's saved my reading life because it had been mostly replaced by knitting. And I really don't want to watch tv during all of my free time. It's a great alternative.
