I did seam this sucker last night and even tried it on (and I actually like it). Said trying on of Not-Really-Hawthorn was late and it was dark, so no photos. I had a late meeting at work today so arrived home later than usual (not to mention tired and cranky), so you only get a photo of Gwendolyn modeling it.
I did not mattress-stitch this baby (as is my usual modus operandi) because of the varied nature of the stitches to be seamed — cables, twists, etc. I back-stitched the whole thing and am pleased with the outcome.
To recap, this was knit from Rowan Amy Butler Belle Organic Aran in the “Orchid” colorway, on 3.75mm and 4.5mm needles and is based on Kathy Zimmerman’s “Hawthorn” pattern that appeared in the Fall 2010 issue of Interweave Knits. I made the middle size (41″).
New! New! New!
I have started knitting with my Rowan Denim yarn (it’s the “Memphis” colorway, by the way). Doing a 1×1 twisted rib in a splitty denim yarn may not be the smartest thing I’ve ever done, but I do so love the look of twisted rib.
I’ll talk more about this project tomorrow, assuming the twisted rib has not driven me insane by then.
Lucy looks worried, doesn’t she?
