First things first, the winner of my copy of Cut It, Sew It, Stow It is Ms. LazySockMonkey Lisa. Thanks to everyone who entered the giveaway!
On to the main attraction: a completed Hitofude!
I used 5 skeins of Dragonfly Fibers Dance Rustic Silk in the Spanish Moss colorway and lengthened the piece by 4 pattern repeats. After steam-blocking, the length in the back is 37″ from neck to hem. As you can see from the photo above, it is shorter in the front.
I added the optional buttonhole and button.
I am very pleased with this sweater. It’s such a clever design and not overly difficult to knit. It;s just a whole lot of knitting — the rows get pretty long towards the bottom. The results are well worth the effort. It’s going to look great over a plain black dress.
Onward . . .
This is what I am using to knit my new project. more on that in my next blog post!
It is snowing here, and is supposed to continue with snow, sleet, and freezing all day and night into tomorrow. Loki and I are going to hunker down and enjoy the day indoors.
