It’s Autumn

The weather has definitely turned, and winter is on it’s way. It’s not here yet though, so technically I’ve finished this just in time.

It would have been more in time however had it been finished a year ago! I started this as part of Carol’s KAL last year. I was intrigued by the sleeve construction.  This is the first time I knit a contiguous sleeve, and if you trust it it works out perfectly.

When I got past the sleeve construction and I guess I got intrigued by other things. But I chipped away at it every now and then, and last week someone gave me a little push to get it finished. Two evenings of concentration later, I’ve finally finished it.  You can see I went for the longer sleeve option, and I lengthened the body as well. I am also tempted to extend the collar and add a button. But for now it’s done, and that feels good.

Pattern: Autumn Whispers by Carol Feller
Yarn: Dublin Dye Company Merino Sock, unnamed colour (almost Water Sprite)

It’s going to take a little trip to the Knitting and Stitching Show in the RDS as a sample garment on the Weave Spin Dye guild stand, and then I can wear it 🙂 I’ll be at the stand as well on Friday morning, stop by and say hi if you’re there!

PS: The guild stand will have some Dublin Dye yarn including a new special colourway dyed for the guild!

  1. Hope to go to RDS on either Thurs or Friday. Will find the Guild stand to see it. Really intrigued with the construction, but as it is a Carol Feller I shouldn’t be surprised. She has some terrific designs. Love your so neat knitting!
