Since I'm in the midst of a top down sweater project,I thought I'd include a couple of tips for transferring to a longer needle when your stitches start to get too crowded, especially when using interchangeable needles.
1) If you have an extra set of tips to attach to the longer cord (or are transferring to a same size fixed circular), just start knitting with the new needle at any point in the round, and continue until all stitches have been transferred.
3) If you have a smaller size interchangeable tip available, remove the left hand needle tip from the cord in use, and replace it with the smaller size tip. Attach the larger (project size) tip to the longer cord and begin knitting with it, as with option 1. Attach a stopper to the other end of the cord, or just be careful until you have enough stitches transferred to safely remove the other project sized tip and attach it to the end of the new, longer cord.
I made good progress on the beginning of the Stripes of Joy Sweater--I just finished the increase round in contrast stripe #4, and the separation for sleeves is the very next step. I'm using five colors of Berroco Lanas--Steel Cut Oats 95102, Leaf 95127, Teal 95121, Limelight 95115, and Sorrel 95143. Other color combos that audtioned for the role are in this Instagram post.
Spent some time adding rows to the Photography Shawl, as well. I can't get over how sculptural this stitch pattern is--the landscapes some knits and purls can create are really remarkable, aren't they?
