Pure

July 01, 2009






























Pure is from the Breeze book by Kim Hargreaves. Probably not the most interesting knit in the book, but something about making it in white June that I had in my stash appealed to me. I love June, even with all my "must be a natural fiber" snobbery. Yes, it is a microfiber, but doe's not have that acrylicky feeling. It's easy on the hands, makes a crisp stitch, and the finished sweater does well in the washer and dryer. I've used June a few times before. Also, I found it online for $2.99 a skein. Can't really ask for more than that in a yarn!

I do like this sweater, but almost didn't finish it. I tried it on after I joined one sleeve to the body, and I looked like a pumpkin. I set it aside, dreading the idea of frogging all that stockinette I had knit and knit, then finally got the idea of a belt. Finished it and belted it and TA DA, love it.

I knit it in the round till the arm opening and added a few more waist increases. Also, I speeded up the raglan decreases or the sleeve opening would have been immense. Also added some length.

Now I am working on Summer Scabbard which has been a trial. More about that later.
