There's not much going on here at Chez Wandering Cat - just working and knitting, working and knitting.
I've cast on for the second front of Eileen.
Even though I'm not that far along, this front seems to be going faster than the other front. Weird eh?
And it got me thinking about how I go about sweater knitting. Another blogger I read mentioned that she prefers to knit the sleeves of her sweaters first - so she gets them out of the way and doesn't get the dreaded second sleeve syndrome.
While my favourite way to knit a sweater is top-down with minimal seaming, when I knit a sweater in pieces, I always knit the back first. It's true, most patterns are just written that way, but I do it to get the largest piece out of the way first - once you've done the biggest swath of knitting, I find the smaller pieces with less stitches just seem to fly by.
How do you like to knit your sweaters?
And just because I can. Here's a picture of Tux.
