The only good thing about the flu is all of the knitting time once you get to the point where you can hold your head up and watch bad tv for a couple of hours in between naps.
The whole deal on this sweater is knitting miles of stockinette. The front and back on each side grow out from the side seam. Each piece needs to measure 12.5″ from the side seam to the end, so a total of 25″ for each piece, before I can start the necklines. After a day of on and off sick person knitting, I’m at 14″ & 16″ and I figure I’ve knit about 8″ today, so I’m hoping the whole sick but able to knit thing holds up and I can make progress on this sweater over the next few days.
