Does this expression bug you, too? I mean, technically, don’t you stick the fork in to find out if something is done?
Regardless, the ribs, AKA Kalbi, are finally sewn up and done. Other than maybe a last minute add. But the pattern as written is done and I proclaim it finished.
The sweater was knit with Anny Blatt Baby merino and Kidsilk Haze held together for the body. The inset and sleeves are KSH alone. With the mohair and the merino it is so squishy and soft – as much fun to squeeze as it was to knit (Wilson – take note!)
It was surprisingly difficult to make a smooth transition between the merino/KSH sides and the insets, which left gaps in the edges of the inset. I at least partially overcame that by running a slip stitch chain up each edge. I wish now that I had made sure to match the color progression on the edge, but that is a minor point.
The one add I am considering is to crochet some little loops to be added to the center of the lower edge of the sleeve, to be fit over my middle finger. This would pull the sleeves down into a point which would mimic the v-neck. It would also improve the shoulder fit – the ribbing really pulls the shoulders in, thereby making the sleeves pull above my wrists and leaves a little poof at the shoulder point.
Just to remind you, I started Kalbi on our Korea trip. It was so named after the Suwon specialty of barbequed ribs, a fitting match for this very ribby sweater.
Now Wilson and I are going for a nice long bike ride. I hope your Sunday is lovely!
