I think I have caught the knitting bug again. I feel incredibly productive lately, and quite happy about it. It does help me feeling less depressed with the job market around here… But I am not going to whinge about it today.
Today, I am going to start my new knitting project. A dress. The pattern is also from DROPS — as I said, they have beautiful free patterns. This time, I read the pattern first, and decided that it is less confusing than the last one. And, as an additional challenge, this one is made top to bottom.
I have never made a dress from top to bottom, and am looking forward to learn it. After all, knitting this from top to bottom also mean that it would be less/no sewing up. It does sound alluring isn’t it?
After few increases, I moved it to circular needle — mainly because I started dropping stitches as they slipped from the metal DPN (reminder: use the wooden DPN next time)… oops.. I think I moved it too early. It stretched a little. I hope it is fine.
Anyway, I wonder, how do you block this? I mean, I am not a big fan of blocking as I have small space in the house, but… seriously… how do you block this if you make the it as a whole? Does it even needs blocking at all? Hmm.. Curious..
