Since there has been a lack of posts since Anna posted her absolutely beautiful finished sweater, I thought I would try to liven things up here and throw up my work-in-progress:
Other than the fact that my neckline is in terrible need of blocking, I was hoping to get some advice as to when I should start finishing up the body. I am working up the 38" size, and for that circumference, the length of the sweater is supposed to be 16 3/4" from the armholes. Right now I am at about 11", and I have almost finished with five diamond repeats. Working through the 6th diamond repeat will put me at about the right pattern length, maybe a little over, and that should make the sweater hit at about hip level. What do you folks think? Are your sweaters turning out hip-length as well? I am posing this question well ahead of actually reaching the point because I want to adjust the side cables to end with the center, working them straight with just three center knit stitches if necessary.
