Despite all sorts of things taking up my time this week I did finally sit down yesterday and seam up my last sweater. Here it is:
I haven’t even tried it on yet. That’s what kind of week it has been. But there it is.
I knit this from my current favorite yarn, Hand Maiden Swiss Silk in the “Earth” colorway, on a U.S. size 6 (4mm needle). It’s a very simple sweater, just 4 rectangles: front, back, and two sleeves. The neck is a boatneck so there isn’t even any neck shaping. And the lace pattern is a simple 4-row all-over design.
So I’ve started something new.
Yes, it is another lace sweater. Yes, it is being knit from Hand Maiden Swiss Silk. This colorway is an almost-solid black and is called “Raven.”
And just for grins, I thought I’d start it with a bobble border.
So far so good!
And just in case you were wondering, I have planned at least two more lace sweaters knit from Hand Maiden Swiss Silk.
