Yes that’s right, I finally finished it! Just a few minutes ago no less. I don’t think it really took me three weeks to knit, I mean, I knitted it off and on ever since I started it on KIP Day.
It’s a pretty easy knit (lace knitting, not knitted lace!) and I’m glad I got to use mission falls. I got to use a little kitchener stitch and do some sleeve seaming, woohoo! Other than that there isn’t much to say about the knitting. Oh, I did find that when seaming the sleeves I had to go beyond my markers to make it look right.
What do I think? Not so sure yet. I had fun knitting it so that’s a plus. But wearing it? Well, let’s just say it’s not quite my style. Apparently I have very short arms, I thought it was suppossed to be a three-quarter sleeve! I measured it and it’s right, but it’s big on me. Maybe after blocking it will look better. What?! I seamed it before blocking? oooohhh yeah! I know no rules! That and the pattern said to, so there.
ugh a post without a pic, so boring. I promise I’ll post one later tonight.
edit: here they are. The more I look at them the more I hate this thing. It’s so frumpy! At least mine doesn’t have that weird pointy thing I’ve seen a bunch of people end up with on theirs. Nope, no pointy thing here. Just a lot of lumpiness around my neck and it sort of does a folding thing on the lower back part. Now that I tried it on again I realize how hot it feels (grant it, it is a million degrees and humid outside). Nope, not a good bias at all.
