Drops 103-1 – One part done!

Posted by 2ton Inspired on November 9, 2007

Thank goodness for TV night (Smallville and Grey’s Anatomy). I finished the back piece last night. So far it’s coming along well. The tension seems versatile enough to make it a sweater or jacket. I’m a bit mystified at the amount of shedding the yarn does though. My knitting area has little “hairs” of the yarn all over. I hope it won’t continue to do that when it’s finished.

This is my first official Drops pattern and it’s taking some time to get use to the terminology and the (lack of) directions. Most of the patterns I have used are quite detailed and tell you when to attach another ball or when to knit both sides at the same time. I also had to copy/paste the instructions into MS Word and break it up into a new line for each time the instructions changed. But I’m truckin’ through it.

I’m thinking of doing both the front pieces at the same time since they should fit on the circs. That way I’m also ensuring that the decreases match. Plus it will feel like its going fast because I’ll finish both at the same time.
