Awhile ago we got in some new silk garden and kureyon at the store, and there was one colour that lots of knitters (myself included) were drawn to – this natural colour of silk garden (number 269).
I snapped myself up a bunch and have rather quickly worked up most of a new sweater/wrap thing! I took this photo on Tuesday and now this piece is done – it’s a big rectangle, with seed stitch borders (since we all know how much I love seed stitch).
The plan is a rectangle-with-sleeves – I planned out the dimensions, and knit in some waste yarn in strategic places to be pulled out, and sleeves knitted down. Hard to explain, but I’m hoping it’ll be pretty cool. So the rectangle’s done, now I just need to knit the sleeves, and it looks like I’ll be right on with yardage (10 skeins).
Nice when that stuff works out, eh?
