Raspy’s done, and I think I like it!
Pattern: Rowan Denim People
Yarn: Pakucho organic cotton in…I think it was avocado
Needles: Denise US6
Finished: August 20, 2006
As you can see, the sleeves are quite baggy while the body is fairly fitted. Serves me right for fiddling with the body numbers but not the sleeve! I think I was just tired of changing the numbers.
The “whoops I took a photo” shot, which I think actually shows the sweater quite well:
The modified neckline. I lowered the front neck by doing some short rows, and did my own thing with the dropped stitches. I also seamed it up right side out, so no inside-out seams here. The neck was too wide when i finished up (plus, felt a little unsubstantial) so I did a round of single crochet, skipping about every 4th stitch.
Looking at various clothing retailers’ websites, I think all the new fall sweaters out there are getting to me! I want sweaters! More, more! My head is swimming with sweater ideas. Plus, in Reitmans today I saw many a sweater, including quite a few bulky ones (3 st/in) so perhaps there’ll be a nice chunky sweater flying off my needles soon.
