Meet May, everyone. It's that Bristol Ivy design I was telling you about, and like so many of her patterns, it has an interesting fit and construction.
Details: I used US needles sizes 2 and 4 to knit the second size. The cartridge stitch took some concentration at first, but eventually became second nature. Have I mentioned how much I love the look of it? It's like ribbing on crack.
This was a straight forward knit so I can't think of anything else to say about it. I suppose I should mention that a couple of us who knit it in the TTTKAL thought the fronts seemed too long to connect to the back at the dimensions given, but blocking worked it's magic and they seamed up nicely.
On the subject of blocking, this is pretty flexible. One lovely knitter knit with little ease, whereas mine has some. I actually like lots of ease and wouldn't have minded more, but I could block this out further if I really wanted to. It is flexible that way.
At least the zinnias have taken off, which I'm making use of by posing so naturally here. Can't you hear me saying, "Ah, let me just spread this ribbing out and check something. Hmm, I see... yes, I do feel like a dork standing in the mud and staring at my sweater."
