Dudes: I'm so excited. My first ever sweater is almost finished. Well actually, it's my third sweater. The first was an utter failure and is in a pile in the back of a closet somewhere. The second didn't fit and went to my nephew. However, this one fits and looks FAB!
Here are my two issues that I'm hoping I can get guidance on:
1. The bottom of the sweater is knit on 5s and the body and sleeves are knit on 6s. I didn't do the two sizes smaller thing because I don't like the bottom of my sweaters too tight. However, I don't like loose cuffs. I'm thinking that I should do the cuffs on 4s. Do you think it will look too awkward?
2. This is also my first time blocking a sweater. I read somewhere that you can wash your sweater in cold water on the gentle cycle and then put it on your woolly board to block. I'm hoping this is an approved method because it would be super easy. If not, is it the old and wash and then roll up in towels?
