work in progress

I've been working on Ogunquit by Norah Gaughan. I'm using Rowan Calmer, which is a great yarn. I had to adjust my decrease rate because my row gauge is off, and I also wanted a faster decrease rate for the back bottom. I think it might be a bit too narrow on the front top parts, but it is probably tolerable. I might wear it fastened at the bottom with a sweater pin. I'm just finishing up the right side and then i have two small sleeves to go. I decided to knit the front twisted ribbing bands together with the front pieces instead of doing a separate band and sewing it on later. I like finishing work, but knitting a long narrow twisted rib band would be too much even for me.

Looks great so far! Good call on doing the edging together with the main garment. How peculiar to knit a ribbed band separately.
