Today it is snowy...COLD...windy...argh. I am suddenly very tired of winter weather, especially because it is spring!
Let me bring you back a few days when it was sunny...gorgeous...
I finished up my sweater!
Pattern: Sunlit by Kim Hargreaves. Found in Nectar.
Bracelet: Heather's clear beaded version...love it!
Yarn: New from Estelle - South Pacific colour 909 (a gorgeous very light mauve)
Started: March 15th, 2009
Finished: April 1st, 2009.
Adjustments: I knit the medium size so that there is no ease. My version is more fitted than the pattern shows. I also ended up taking out the cast off and doing one more decrease in the neckline with a few more rows. I loved the neckline but I had to fiddle with the bra straps so this solved that issue.
I love the wide sleeve. It fits my larger sized arms perfectly and the length is flattering. The only issue I have discovered is it is really hard to get this sleeve into a jacket. So I will wait for the sun to come out again so I don't have to wear a jacket with it;)
I can't say enought about Kim Hargreaves knits. They are all so gorgeous, well written and totally wearable. The Nectar book is just gorgeous. The only issue is deciding which one to knit next;)
