Yesterday, I managed to finish the front of Jaipur, and using a short row shoulder treatment, I joined the stepped shoulders front and back with a three-needle bind-off. Short-rows make the step more of an elegant slope and eliminates the holes at the row changes I would get if I tried to do a three needle bind-off with shaped shoulders. I would have to rip it all out and re-bind off and seam like a respectable knitter. I had read about this application of short-rows in a class description from the upcomingTKGA Conference in Manchester, so I thought that I would try it here.
I am awaiting my registration information from the TKGA hoping for admission to the Friday July 23rd classes I requested, but I’ll be happy just to go. Is anyone else going to be there?
