As you might already know I'm a shawls addicted, I've never counted how many shawls I have knitted during my "career". I'm not sure I want to know it either!
As a therapy to cure my condition I try to knit at least one sweater during every solar year. I was toward the end of November 2012 and there was no sweater on my needles. A strong action needed to be taken...
I have been reading on several Ravelry forums of this new Contiguous Method, I loved the FOs (finished objects) shared in so many Ravelry's projects pages. I wanted to try to knit a sweater with the contiguous too!
In the past I found myself with several UFOs (unfinished objects) and of course I'm referring to sweaters. I'm so bad, I feel guilty. In order not to have a UFS (unfinished sweater) sitting around the house I use some tricks. The most effective one is: Test Knitting one. If I have a deadline to respect, I'm a perfect pupil!
I did it. I test knitted a sweater with the "slanted contiguous method". I have to confess it was a challenge to understand the pattern. After a couple of false attempts and some great help from the designer and a new found raveller friend Daniela I'm finally wearing O N C E:
This is a winner. I will definitely knit more sweaters with the slanted contiguous. It follows the natural lines of the shoulders much better then the classical reglan sweater.
