George is coming on a treat desipte me forgetting (a) yarn (b) a tape measure and (c) the pattern on separate days this week.
One sleeve, a collar, two pockets and a button band to go! I blocked the pieces I have already made this morning and despite it seeming really small when knitting, it is actually the right size. Horay!
BUT... I have real issues with my stocking stitch on this garment. Can you see?
Maybe closer will help?
My stitches are really lopsided. Is all of my knitting like this and I have never noticed?
They are not perfect little v's - the left hand side of the stitch as you look at it is much tighter and more upright than the right. Is this just the way I knit? Is it the yarn? Am being really picky? Does anyone know a way of fixing it? I knit english style and throw my yarn. I experimented a bit on the way home last night knitting continental but the same thing happens.
Blocking does sort it out a bit... but not completely.
