Yarn Along ~ Portside

I cast on Portside earlier this week, it's just what I need right now.  Round and round knitting with increases every other row.  The cast on was a little different than I expected being an adult sweater (rather than a child's, which I'm more accustomed to knitting).   It will make for a nicer fit and more efficient yarn usage.  I'll get a lot of use from a this tunic.  It would be very easy to adapt the pattern for a cardigan stye too.  Since things need to be easy I'm reading Letters from WIngfield Farm, it's light and entertaining.  The author, Dan Needles used to write a column for Harrowsmith magazine, which has sadly ceased publication.

I just took a look at Dan Needles on Amazon. Sounds like a series I would dearly enjoy. Thanks for blogging about it!
