So the rib is pretty tedious. Knit 5, Purl 3. Purl 5, Knit 5. Back and forth, forth and back. But the Debbie Bliss Cashmerino makes it all worth it! I love this yarn. Unfortunately, because Shawn wanted the sweater to be longer, by 3 inches, I think I may not have enough yarn. So I need to fudge a little. I have enough to do the front, but the arms! Oh the knot in my stomach even thinking about it! So I'm off to the land of the online shopping and hope to God that I find dye lot #387! Wish me luck, I think I'm going to need it!
