I’ve been knitting on the intermittently all week. Now that I’ve got a rhythm going I can (mostly) knit by touch. The linen can occasionally get splitty, but it’s not too bad.
The hardness of the yarn makes for a very uneven knit, but I’m hopeful that it will behave like the swatch and look all nice and even after it’s washed and dried (she says with just a hint of concern).
As for mods (you know I had to, right?) I’m knitting this top-down. I want to be able to try it on periodically, and I’d like to stick to the yarn I have so this will be the best way for me to do that.
