I'm on to the 2nd front now - yay! Loving that the lace work is relatively easy and is not across a huge number of stitches so feels very manageable. I've just completed the 2nd set of German Short Rows (these are a nifty way of adding extra length where needed on just one section of your garment such as neck or shoulder height) now too. I know that alot of knitters are quite intimidated by these but I've found after doing a couple of Isabell Kraemer patterns they are really simple. I've created a video below that shows the DS (double stitch) which is the basis of the German Short Rows after you 'turn'.
A customer asked about linking to the needles required. As you can see I have started on straight needles, 4.5mm which are here. But you don't have to, I've only done that so that I can see the lace work easier and understand what I am doing. I will switch to circulars when I join the back to the two fronts. Because I am knitting in our Unravelled Quattro yarn which is a bit finer that the pattern recommends I have dropped a needle size to 4.5mm with 4mm for trims. Here are the respective links for interchangeable circulars and cables.
Here's how it's looking, especially love the slip stitch edge and the fact that the collar rib is part of the garment - no picking up stitches later!
