Knitting Up A Storm!


Monday, March 03, 2008

The 28 30 is almost done, see:

Weaving in ends, blocking and buttons sewn on still need to be done, but the knitting is done like dinner.

Pattern Specs - 28 30 by Zephyr Style
Yarn - 6 skeins of Rowan Magpie found at local thift store
Needles - 5mm Knitpicks Options Needles

Mods:

- knit a full length version because thankfully I had enough yarn, plus I am short waisted and would like shorter with the cropped version.
- slipped the first stitch of every row purlwise with yarn in front for a nice neat edge.
- no decreases for the arms, I like lots and lots of room in this area.

I had about 840 yards of Magpie Aran, and this is all I had left, PHEW:
