Last time I blogged about Vitamin D, it had garter stitch edging that was curling up to the point I knew it would never block out flat. It got put into time out for a few weeks until the weather got cool. Then I picked it up, frogged the edging, and replaced it with seed stitch.
The seed stitch lays nice and flat, plus I like the looks of it better than the garter stitch.
Only the remainder of the sleeves are left to be knit. I'm still deciding if I want them three-quarter like the pattern or full length.
One sleeve is knit twelve inches, the other sixteen, so Vitamin D is almost done.

In truth, the hesitation over the length of Vitamin D sleeves is only an excuse to cast on the Dream in Color Classy yarn that arrived about a week ago.
This is a quick easy pattern knit top down with no seams. The yarn is pleasant in the fingers and slips easily on and off the needles.
It's possible this will be the first project I have ever knit with no changes and using the yarn shown in the pattern.
