here’s my newest finished/semi-finished object! it still needs some buttons and i have to weave in my ends (story of my life). anyway, last saturday i fell in love with this sweater pattern and said off-handedly that i could probably knit it in a week, and one of my coworkers made a few jokes about it on monday. BUT I DID IT! i finished knitting it last night and sewed it up this morning. so there!
i knit the smallest size because the pattern recommended having 15 inches (!!!!!!) of ease. but, i knit at a slightly smaller gauge (we’re talking 1/8 stitch/inch at most) and it’s a little smaller than i’d like. i think i’ll be able to block it out well, though. i had pretty terrible blocking equipment at my disposal yesterday and today, so i think it can still be fixed. it is big enough, though, so worst case scenario i don’t have a really boxy sweater and instead i have a plain old sweater.
pattern: rossan, from the debbie bliss donegal tweed collection
yarn: cascade ecowool (2 skeins!!!!!)
needles: size 10/10.5 US
ok, the final moments of rock of love 2 are going on right now and i need to concentrate. see you later!
