Looking a Bit Like Old Paint’s Blanket lol

Inky:Oh jeeze.

I whizzed through the decreases, albeit with some “has difficulty reading instructions” issues.

Went onto the increases, and had to fudge a little because my row gauge ‘might’ be a little off.

But still, so far so good.

And I finished up the armhole shaping  ok.

Now I’m in the land of endless knitting to get my length of armhole.

What the H*ll! Now I’m kind of a literal instruction reader – i.e. you best be giving it to me short and to the point, because I will either zone out and miss a step, or I will skip the instructions altogether lol.

But either I haven’t knit that many armhole shaping sweaters, which is true, or I need it really spelled out.

It says, and I quote, “Knit even till armhole measures blah, blah.” Now, do I measure the height from armhole beginning, or along the edge of the armhole to get my total?

What say ye fellow KAL-ers?

PS: See how the yarn is knitting out uneven? Or am I knitting uneven? Or am I stretching the yarn a bit in some places? Or am I asking too many questions lol? ———————>

    ninnawe: Inky, I love how you stage your pictures. A candle here, shells there, just the right shadow … yarn as still life.

    Notice my pics … knitting laid out flat on a plain background.
    Maybe I’ll add some cilantro to my next pic.

      Inky: ninnwe, I read this blog where they took an actual class in staging your knitting for pictures?!, and I guess I got carried away lol. They said to tell a story? with your picture. I’m not sure what story it tells except, I took a picture on the dining room table lol, but I’m trying to get classy… that may never happen. 🙂

    ninnawe: I think the armhole length is a straight vertical measurement … the height of the armhole.

    Your knitting looks fine and even to me. Blocking cures most irregularities.

    Inky: ninnawe, thanks for the vote of confidence. I’m hoping the same.
