I have pulled out the corrugated ribbing I started on the bottom of my Shetland Sampler Cardigan. It just wasn't working for me: it competed too much with the body of the sweater, it was too bulky, and it wouldn't lie flat. I have started again in a single color.
If you were in on the planning stages of this project, then you may recall that originally, I planned to do the ribbing in black, as I had plenty of that color. In looking at the pieces now that they're knitted however, I wasn't so sure about black bands. In the comments of my last SSC post, Wool Enough and Cyndy suggested the gray might be a better choice. I welcomed this because I had been considering it but just wasn't sure. Here are the results...
You probably can't see in the photo, but this is a K2P2 rib. I'm much happier with it and knitting progress has picked up once again. Hopefully I'll get this finished before warm weather arrives!
