After leaving Sun on Thursday, I did quite a lot of knitting over the weekend. There's something meditative about the stitches gliding off the needles, even if I did have a few false starts on the pattern. I've discovered that doing Japanese short rows on purls is a little tricky, so I need to think about that a bit more. The reason for the short rows? The sweater has a combination of stitch patterns across the back, including a brioche section in the centre. Brioche has a smaller row gauge, so I need more rows of brioche to make sure the back hemline is even when it's finished. In total I need to keep track of how many rows I've knitted, the waist shaping, the short-row repeat, and the pattern repeat. I'm starting to think a better row counter is in my future.
