True to my word, I've been working steadily on Agatha.
I'm still fighting bronchitis, and while I'm mostly feeling better, being too active quickly reminds me that I am not out of the woods yet. So I'm puttering, and taking frequent knit breaks. And as a result....
Agatha. In fact, I'm only a few inches from the bottom ribbing. It's a cropped cardigan, which is part of the reason it's going so quickly - it's also worsted weight, which helps.
I'd planned on knitting this one with no mods (except possibly altering the sleeve length), but when it was time to join for the body, I read the pattern wrong and didn't add on the correct amount of stitches for my size. Of course, I realized this when I was already about 20 rows past it. I didn't have the heart to rip it out, so a-modding I will go. My version just won't have as much shaping in the waist, but it should still fit fine.
As mentioned previously, I'm knitting with Debbie Bliss Merino Aran. I have had mixed results with some of Debbie Bliss' yarns, but I'm enjoying this one. I've gotten so use to working with superwash yarn that it's a bit odd to work with one that's not. While it's got a bit of "grab" to it, it doesn't feel like it will be too itchy to wear.
I have until February 14th to finish this for the KAL, but I'd love to have an FO post for you in the very near future.
