WIPs: Angelica & vest November 3, 2006Posted by merp in Knitting.
I am nearly done with Angelica!
OK, not really. Still have to knit both sleeves, seam them, pick up a border for the neck, and weave in all the ends.
Finished the body already a couple weeks ago, I think, and have been temporarily stalled on the sleeves, afraid they’re too skinny. I altered the shaping for the body a lot – to customize, you know – which meant lots of calculating, knitting, frogging back, recalculating, forgetting what I calculated in the first place, and in the end, employing some math that was just plain wrong. So it’s a little tight around the rib cage. Can be blocked out looser, though. I do hope it fits!
God, I love this yarn.
And then in the meantime, I inexplicably started another project. Because I really wanted a vest, you see. You know, one of those trendy vests with the deep neckline? Yeah.
This is the back, of course. I did almost all of this on a business trip in early October.
And of course I will not be following the pattern (Veste Everest, Interweave Knits Fall 2005). Why make something that wouldn’t be a frustrating struggle? My gauge with the yarn (something bought in Peru) is slightly off, and I want a much deeper neckline. So, more math lies ahead.
My first real cable project, actually! Except for these little mitts.
