This is not the start of the Cotton Fleece top. It's the top down raglan I've been putting off for several weeks. When I was trying to find something in my knitting bag I found the few rows I had done and decided I'd better get back to it.
The color is a bit washed out. I'm using Malabrigo worsted in Lettuce. Have you used this stuff? It's wonderful. Soft. Easy to knit. Not scratchy at all. I was using some Clover bamboo circulars because that was all I had with me when I started. Have I mentioned lately how much I dislike these needles? So I've switched to some very old Boye that have a much better point and they don't have that annoying little bump where the cable joins the needle. The one that makes it really difficult to move the stitches onto the needle. It's going much better.
I have forty rows done and am almost done with the increases. I still have to decide how I'm going to treat the sleeves and the body. I keep thinking a lace pattern but then it's wool so that might be incongruous. I started thinking I'd do a ribbing and finish it off with a small ruffle. I might still do that since ruffles seem to be popular right now. It's a shop sample so I don't have to make it last forever.
