Pre-holiday roundup

Sorry about not posting last week - work got a little crazy with everyone trying to finish projects before the end of term (I am at a university). Here's where our collective Cinxia knitters are:

Moze is recovering from being seriously overworked but has still managed to attach the sleeves and get about an inch into the yoke.

Chelle is on her decrease rows before the collar, but has some holiday knitting to finish first - check out the adorable jumper!

Chloe really wants to start her sleeves but is also conflicted by fair isle mittens and the new Knitty. Add the new Interweave Knits to that and it's pretty much where I am at too, except that I'm on the second sleeve.

Jeanne fnished and blocked her Cinxia, but has decided that it would wear better with a little more ease, so it's going back on the needles. Any photos, Jeanne?

Blogless (?) Cynthia and Deb ask whether anyone has tried different stitch patterns for their Cinxias...Sheila is using a seed stitch edging and regular stockinette for the body (bet that goes faster). Sheila, let us all know if that changes the hang of the garment.

I really want to finish mine by January; after I prepare for the Hanukkah/Xmas party we're hosting Sunday, I'm hoping it'll be all knitting all the time for me. Famous last words...


  • About changing the stitches--if you do regular stockinette on the body it will not bias, so it should hang straight and even, not come to the points in the front. I think it would change the whole look of the sweater. This may be what you want--just be aware that not twisting the knits stitches would do this.
