Pattern: One Skein Wonder from Glampyre
Yarn: My handspun, hand dyed merino, very soft. I dyed the top, spun it up and navajo plyed. I was delighted to find it knit to gauge.
Needles: 5mm Circs for body and 3.75mm circs for ribbing and moss stitch sleeve detail.
Comments: This was a very fast knit for me, I reckon it took me about 6 hours all up, and I’m not a superfast knitter by any standards. The worst bit was picking up stitches for the ribbing, I did pick up too many and I think this has been one of the factors in why the ribbing isn’t as ‘pulled in’ as I would like. I also should have used 3.5mm circs, but I don’t have any.
I’ll be away for a week, attending the Geelong Textile Fibre Forum YAY!. I’ve been looking forward to this for 6 months.
