Dear Kay and Ann,
Here are two photos of me in my finished “Bang out a Revolution” pullover.
I was lecturing and teaching at the Greater Boston Knitting Guild’s February meeting last Thursday.
Location: Trinity Church in Boston. I don’t know who did the painting.
I think the only pattern change I haven’t mentioned in my previous telegrams are 4 or 5 decreases at bottom of the cable panel before starting the ribbing, on the same row where there are increases in the stockinette stitch.
My pullover is 10½ inches from the bottom of the armhole to the top of the ribbing, with 2½ inches of ribbing. That’s short, but so am I, being only 5 feet tall.
My sleeves are 9 inches to the top of the ribbing, with 2½ inches of ribbing. I love shorter sleeves. I’m almost always too hot, and I like the proportions on me too.
To recap: for my Bang Out a Sweater project, I used the Elaine’s Capelet cable to knit a shorter version of the Liberty Tree Pullover, in the fourth size. As explained in a previous telegram, I extended the yoke cables down the center front of my pullover. My yarn is Julie Asselin Hektos in Sherwood. It’s a gorgeous green with an undercurrent of rust, and was SUCH a pleasure to knit.
