updates all around – The Shawl Geometry Books & my Banaue Breeze sweater

Each Wednesday, I post a snapshot of the projects I’m working on, and where my brain is at.

I dove back into my Banaue Breeze this week. I had originally intended to weave in the ends, and then block it and have it finished.

But as I was looking over my sweater I didn’t love the finishing that the pattern had you do. The pattern called for picking up, knitting a handful of rows, and then working a stretchy bind off.

I decided I’d prefer my sweater if I picked up, knit fewer rows than called for, and worked an i-cord bind off. I’ve used an i-cord bind off on most of the necklines on most of my other sweaters, and have always loved the results.

So, I ripped out my bind off, ripped out a couple rows of knitting, and worked an i-cord bind off – which I’m liking much more. Now all that’s left is (again) to weave in the ends, wash and block it (and photograph it, of course).

And as promised, an update on the Shawl Geometry Books Update.
