And the Knit Goes On

I'm working on my CPH, but unfortunately only a few rows every day, I really need to pick up the pace on this.

As you see in the photo, I"m knitting the back and both sleeves on a 32" circular, just to be sure that I don't lose interest along the way and have whole pieces left behind to wither away in my knitting bag. I intend to do the same with the L/R fronts. I'm enjoying the progress reports so far, and congrats to Marywary on a beautiful finish! I notice comments here and elsewhere about modifications, and that's already giving me the heebie jeebies. This will be my first full size garment for myself, and I'm just hoping that the pattern fits well as written. If anything, I may extend the back and fronts, but only if I can be sure that there isn't some complex calculation that I might miss and throw the whole thing off.

Happy knitting all!

I think you'll find that the pattern gives you a sweater that's the dimensions of the schematic -- which is a bit on the slim side. Also, which is fashionable.

If you're worried, measure a similar garment you already own that you like the fit of -- compare it with the schematic for the size you're knitting. If you need to make changes in the length of the body or sleeves, just do it before the armhole shaping starts and you should have NO problem.

Looks lovely so far!

I'm sure you will do just fine! I've made a bunch of sweaters before and I have to say this is the one I like the best. And everyone here has been such a great help! Hang in there!!
