NaKniSweMoDo number uhhh… four – no, number three… no, four!
Let’s see. I knit three tops, then frogged one and re-knit it. So what do I call it?
When asked whether a frogged and reknit top would count as one or two, Susan said “It TOTALLY counts as two!”. After all, I’d be knitting two finished, wearable tops – they just both happen to be from the same yarn. I think I caught her in a moment of weakness. But I have witnesses.
So may I present, NaKniSweMoDo sweater number four: (And no, it’s not nearly as warm as it looks. It was in the mid 40’s and I was FREEZING.)
Pattern: Seed Stitch Shell, by Charlotte Quiggle – from Vogue Knitting, Spring/Summer 2005. I really need to get my hair done like that, and find a pair of those pants – dontcha think?
Yarn: Lion Brand Cotton Ease, lime green, 3 skeins
Needles: US 6 (4 mm)
Modifications: The pattern calls for a bulky yarn, so basically I followed the directions for the largest size since I had a much smaller gauge. Other than that, I made slight modifications to the waist shaping and made the shoulder pieces narrower.
I’m much happier with this one than with the first one I made. I could have worn it, but probably wouldn’t have, since it felt baggy. This one is much more comfortable.
And since we enjoyed Norma‘s post about her Marta sweater so much, the Pontiff thought I should do a “looking through the window à la Norma” pose. I really wanted to do the garden ornament pose, but there just wasn’t a good spot for it.
