Knitting

Saltwater. I finished a sweater.

It’s sunny. It’s Friday. And I have a new sweater.

I like it.

… more, better photos will be coming… but these are just quick snapshots until then.

It’s knit in my worsted weight yarn (Saltwater colourway) from the top down and finished with a stretch of vine lace at the bottom. I’m pretty sure I knit the sleeves the same length… I measured and everything… but it still “appears” as if one sleeve is longer than the other. Hmm. Maybe my arms aren’t the same length.

The design is my own and I’m knitting up a second version of it in a sportweight yarn. The worsted weight version was so quick to knit, it practically knit itself… but with the sportweight version, I’m seeking a lighter quality to the lace bit and a finer fabric altogether. I’m looking forward to more knitting this weekend…

    Looks really nice.

    It’s totally possible that your dominant hand/arm is thicker than your other arm and that’s what’s causing the length “difference”.

    It’s so cute! FWIW, my arms aren’t the same length. Get outside and enjoy the spring weather. It’s a gorgeous day in Seattle as well.

    I think it’s a great color, too! This is a color I seen repeatedly lately in the blogging world, especially with fiber addicts. Well done, gorgeous piece.

    Beautiful sweater out of a beautifully colored yarn. I’m glad that this post is for a temptation I could do rather than the “buy a loom” temptation from the weaving pictures (not that weaving doesn’t look fun, I just can’t afford a new hobby right now).

    That’s really beautiful! It looks so versatile and wearable — dress it up, dress it down… If it’s turning into a pattern for Ravelsale, hook me up!

    That is such a beautiful sweater! It’s one of those sweaters that made my stomach lean forward to get a better look. I know that sounds weird, but that’s what it did.

    Seriously beautiful sweater. I would pay for that pattern!

    Congratulations on a wonderful knit-job.

    I love the sweater! I must say that first, but what I loved the most is your cute haircut. I’ve longed to have that cute bob for years, but super, curly hair is not conducive. Congrats on another wonderful knitted object.

    Very cute. I love the one button closure and the elbow length sleeves. I can’t wait to see the sport weight version and more pictures of this one!
