FO: Glee

Pattern: ZephyrStyle Glee
Yarn: Elsbeth Lavold Hempathy, 6 balls in color 021
Needles: US 4 & 2

She’s finished and I really like her. Even though these finer knits take a little more time, they are so much lighter for summer wear. And I couldn’t be more pleased with the color of this yarn.

I did make a few changes to the pattern. I did a few less raglan increases as I didn’t want the sleeves to turn out too big. I then kept increasing at the underarms a few more times. This did create a funny little ‘design element’. Because I kept increasing every other row after separating for the sleeves the sweater has about 1-1/2″ that juts out a bit under the arms. But, the sweater fits well and it is under the arms so I’m not going to worry to much about it 🙂 I also added waist shaping, shortened the sweater by a couple of inches, and make the neckline much less deep. I’m really happy with this sweater and look forward to wearing it this summer.

Next up, the Folded Cowl Tee.

Playing Catch-Up, Again

Whew, I’ve been gone for awhile.  I haven’t made the time to blog lately, and I think my posts will probably continue to be less often than they used to be.  I do update my Flickr Account several times a week, though.

Anyways, on the knitting front:

I finished the Waving Lace Socks.

Details here. They were a lot of fun and knitted up very quickly. The yarn was great, also. Side note: my feet really aren’t short and stubby like they look in the photo – must have been my camera angle.

I made Ysolda’s Verity.
 
I finished it in a weekend, and it was lots of fun to knit. Details here.

I finished Wicked.

But it’s too small. So I’ll be ripping up to the armholes and re-knitting, hopefully this weekend.

Glee has also been finished and is blocking.

I hope to have modeled photos this week.

And, I discovered the joy of Noro Sock Yarn.

I knitted this sock on size US 0 needles and could barely force it onto my foot. So I ripped to the toe and started again on US 1 needles. I finished last night, and the beginning of the leg is too tight, so I’ll be frogging a few inches again, and re-knitting a bit looser this time. And the yarn is so great I’m still enjoying this sock.

So that’s the update for now. Hope you all have a great rest-of-the-week.
