Needles: Knitpicks Size 6 and 8
Buttons: Ceramic from Briar Rose Fibers
Size: Medium body, Large sleeves
Mods: I knit this baby all in one piece, removing 2 stitches from the back, and 1 stitch from both the left and right fronts. I joined the shoulders with a 3-Needle bindoff instead of seaming. I added a cable to the hood, and kitchener stitched the hood. I picked up the buttonband all in one piece as to avoid the seam in the center front of the hood.
Here are some pictures.
I also finished blocking my Ishbel Shawl.
Yarn: Malabrigo Sock in Solis purchased at The Fiber Fix
Needles: Knitpicks Size 5
Size: Small Stockinette, Large Lace
Finished Measurements : 52 inches wide, 21 inches long
I love this shawl! This was my first attempt at actually completing one, and my first attempt at blocking lace. My goodness this thing grows a lot!
A few days ago, I started to make Sylvi. I got through the left front to the point where I would have to do the raglan decreases. At this point, the fabric is supposed to measure 26 inches. However, my fabric measures just barely 17 inches. I am so mad!!! I am using Cascade Eco +, and other people on Ravelry have used it with a size 10 needle, and their jackets look great. At this rate, I will end up having something that looks like a maternity sweater. Now, there is a time and place for that....but I am just not there yet. So, to the frog pond I go. I plan on making the Military Cardigan (Ravelry Link) designed by Veronik Avery with this yarn instead. Now, I am on a quest to find Bulky yarn with a gauge of 3 sts/inch....SIGH!!! Cascade LIES!!! Eco + is not bulky. It's heavy worsted
