I'm just curious. If you were working on a project with a provisional cast on, would you rather pick up stitches and knit the next part from the bottom or knit the next piece separately and then graft the two together? Personally, I'm tending toward the grafting bit but, again, I'm just curious as to others' preferences.
Now that I think about it, this is among the first serious projects I started, and the fourth I've finished.
We all know about the "sweater curse," but is there a general knitwear curse too? Hope not, because these are for my b.f. :) The pattern is "Jeck" (free Ravelry download). It's a nice easy sock and the slip stitch rib makes for a nice contrast of color and keeps it interesting.
I am almost finished with JAne Ellison's Akeno from her book Noro Men. I've completed the back, both sleeves the right front. Just started the left front then have to piece it together and knit in the hood and sew in the zipper. Should have done by the holiday weekend and will post a pic. PAttern is easy and completes fast.
