C’s sweater has finally dried after its blocking, and has had all of the cat-hairs lovingly picked off it before being wrapped in tissue paper to be put in the mail tomorrow. Despite all that, given the degree to which every surface of our house, our clothing, and even the inside of our car is covered in cat hair, the odds of it arriving to C allergen-free are pretty much zero.
Ravelry Project Page
Pattern: my own, tentatively called “Garter Whimsy”, designed especially for C, in exchange for a quilt.
Yarn: Cascade 220, in "Aporto". 6 skeins. (Maybe a little more? I lost track, but it was definitely less than 7).
Needles: size 8 Denise Circulars and Knitpicks dpns.
Time to knit: May 27 – June 21st
And now, some detail shots:
I am immensely proud of this sweater, and am so grateful to C for giving me a reason to design it! I do plan to write up a pattern for this design, including a variety of options for cuff and neckline finishes (such as the ones I did in my “Swatch” for this sweater). I don’t know when I’ll actually get around to it, though, given how much I have on my plate right now both knitting-wise and otherwise. Before the end of the year, that much is for sure.
