The 200+ stitch rows are killing me - it's an 11 row repeat and two of them have bobbles. I have to learn how to knit backwards to do those bobbles more easily - there is a lot of knitting to flip around to do these bobbles (turning them back and forth so many times!) I know there was a tutorial on the Jimmy Beans' Wool web site that I have to check out.
I can't wait to get to the end of the back that's even with the arms and do the decreases for the rest of the back. After that, there's lots of picking up and knitting as there's a fairly large ribbed and bobbled edge that goes around the whole thing.
What was I, nuts, when I decided to start this project???? Next time I say it will be a really good idea to make anything with bobbles, just give me a good smack.
One good thing I did was switch to addi turbos for this, as the bamboos were driving me nuts with the "K3togs". I'm using the same needle size as my gauge isn't really different between bamboos and addis now - it used to be.
