Happy Your Country celebration weekend. I spent the morning at the Farmer's Market, this afternoon finishing a book and tonight I'm going to knit outside if it cools down. Aaah, holiday weekends, aren't they great?
And what would a holiday be without some knitting. I'm below the waist of my experiment pullover. It's moving along nicely.

At each side seam, which isn't there because it's worked in the round but you know what I mean, I've decreased twice and increased twice. At the safety pin I decreased 2 sts, 2" below that I decreased 2 more sts. I knit straight for 2" to my waist, at my waist I increased 2 sts and then increased 2 sts again an inch later on the last round. That makes my sweater come in about 1 1/2" at the waist. Even this little bit will make a difference to the fit.

I'm working an inch between increases because I get wider quicker below my waist. I'll also keep increasing until the hip is a couple of inches wider than the top of my sweater. You guessed it, because that's what my figure is. No point in fighting the way it is.
On that note, have a great weekend,
