451 stitches

While watching LOST last night I finished the second sleeve on Amelia and started working on the yoke of the sweater. I had to make the sleeves wider than the pattern calls for (I'm imagining the designer having super-skinny upper arms to make me feel better), so the yoke has LOTS of stitches.

261 on the body and 95 on each sleeve. So the first two rows of the yoke had 451 stitches. Woot.

Thankfully the raglan decreases start on the 3 row of the yoke, and each right side row is decreased by 8 stitches. I think it takes about 12-15 minutes to knit each row. It's slow going, but I'm still motivated. If only my employer would pay me to keep knitting at work. ;-)

Knitting sounds really complicated... :)

Eh... nothing you can't handle I am sure!
