  1. Suggestion from Mom for Thermal. when you get to the neck, where you cast off, and need to pick up again later for ribbing…

    what I have done instead of casting off, is to slide the stitches onto a stitch holder (the thing that looks like a huge knitting needle safety pin).

    that way when you go to pick up the stitches, they are right there waiting for you.

  2. I know it’s supposed to be a sweater and all but it actually looks neat with the arm separated from the body of the shirt.

    And the shirt. wow. 🙂
