I just cast on for my lovely Forecast sweater this weekend. I love, love, love the collar! After I'd gotten through the first bobble row I realized that I had read the cable chart wrong. This even after reading how others had done the same. I guess I had to see it to *see* it. So I frogged those rows and started over just above the collar. By the time I'd gotten that far I'd already learned the pattern so my second start has been really fun since the pattern is memorized making the knitting much more fun and a whole lot less confusing. I did my bobbles a little different because I didn't like how they were looking. They are Kfbf, turn, p3, turn, k2tog, k1, pass first st over. I like how they look this way.
One question on the Make 1's. I'm working the make 1's purlwise. Is that the right way? I'm a kinda new knitter (couple years) so I don't know a whole bunch about different types of stitches.
By way of introduction, my name is Jennifer and I don't have a blog. I'm kinda shy about sharing myself with strangers although I read at least 15 knitting blogs daily. I learned to knit a long time ago but just started really going crazy for it last winter. I started with scarves, moved to hats, then socks. Now I've decided to try a sweater. I thought the top down all in one piece with very little seaming would be a good start.
Oh, yeah, the yarn is Cascade 220 in a bright heathered turquoise.
