Goodness, is it Tuesday already?!
Pattern: Set-in V-neck pullover, 26″ chest size, from Ann Budd’s holy grail of sweaters
Yarn: Leftover Ultra Alpaca from my grandmother’s lap afghan and my v-neck cardi, 2 hanks of the blue and little bits of the red
Time elapsed: Very little… 4 days?
Thoughts/modifications: The pattern outline is made to be modified, so I’m not sure what to say here. I added little stripes around the edges, used the numbers in the pattern exactly, and basically just didn’t think too much on this sweater. One neat trick I learned was the EZ sewn bind-off for the V-neck, which turned out to be wonderfully stretchy without losing its shape. Such a nice bind-off!
I love the look of set-in sleeves on little ones. The crisp tailoring on such little bodies just fills me with squee. He seems to love the sweater, too, which is great. He hugs it and says “Mama” and tries to put it on. Such a sweet little guy!
(There will be an FO page update tonight some time, so check back if you’re mad for the Jacob photos.)
I started a new pair of socks, after all, after seeing someone else knit up J. Knits sock yarn. I’m trying toe-up stockinette with a picot bind-off, and they look great so far. After that, it’ll be a contest between a Shetland triangle in some Richesse et Soie, and Tulip. Such choices!
