Its almost long enough. Just another 3 or 4 rows and it will be time to start the split for the collar. Then 3 inches after that, I am ready to join the sleeves.
I've a little more knitting to go on one sleeve. The other is already done.
I'm following Brooklyn Tweed's Brownstone pattern. I say following because I am, as ever, not knitting to gauge. I'm doing my own gauge so that it would work with how I wanted this yarn to knit up. But the schematics, the brilliance are all Brooklyn Tweed. I hope he doesn't mind.
When you do this kind of thing, this loosely following a pattern sort of knitting, you have to have faith in your own massive ability to frog and belief that you won't be doing that any more often than if you were knitting to pattern. I have a comfortable level of both. I think.
I'm knitting this with Remix. I'm quite enjoying it and I feel just a little bad. I'm sorry about that, Sel and Poivre. I feel kind of bad that you are not having a good time with Remix, while I am. But this yarn in plain stockinette? The boss. For at least 3 hours a day. After that not so much.
I love the way it looks though, and I know the giftee is going to love wearing this.
I still want to own a bag of every colour - maybe 2. Well at least of the guy colours. I can see everybody in the family wanting one of these.
