The sweater is now looking almost like a sweater. No more increases on the body so that means we have just a few inches to go before the sleeves. This is the so close I can taste it part of the sweater.
This is where just a few minutes of knitting makes a huge difference, these last few hours of taking a sweater to the finish. It will seem like I am never going to get there, but having the cable switch every 6 rows, means that there is a marker, something that is an easy to knit to mark to make these last long rows feel less endless.
I am kind of thinking about taking the little detail, the cabled edge,
around the front corners and across the bottom. I am only thinking about it. I don't have a cable trimming the neck, I wanted to finish that part with a simple rolled edge, so I might do just the rolled edge across the bottom. I think it depends how I feel. Lazy? Rolled edge. Energised to knit more cable? Cable.
It made sense last night when I was working to wonder about the cable, but even as I sit here and type, I realize that yeah, it was a nice idea but it is such a small element that what the sweater gains by having it isn't really a lot. I will probably go with just the rolled edge. All bets really are off though, till it happens.
You just never know what comes off my needles next.
