I often start a new design project at the start of a tennis grand slam tournament, so when the Olympics was starting I sat down and started a new project. I finished it during the closing ceremonies, but it didn't quite look the way I expected. I really didn't want to have to reknit the whole thing like my last project.
When I sat down to knit the night after finishing the sweater, the idea came to me to knit an I-cord, after all my new sweater had eyelets around the neckline, maybe I could do something with that? I laced the I-cord through and it solved all the problems.
I modeled it for a couple of knit groups and they all liked the finished project (at least no one spoke up if they didn't like it).
I don't have a photo yet of the completed sweater and I am still working on writing the pattern, but here is a photo of the yoke and the eyelets. They are almost camouflaged, but the neckline is to the right. Finished photos will follow.
The night after my revelation I discovered this spiderweb outside my front door. Spiders are good luck, right?
