Vogue Knitting Holiday 2007
Turbo Addis - 3mm + 3.25mm
I have to thanks my hero Anne for the Jamieson's colorway. Jamieson's is thinner than the Hebridean used by Alice, so I made a larger size and ended up with my size. It was fine with me, it meant more leaves and trees! It's mild where I live, so thinner is more wearable.
The only thing I forgot was that 'she' places her buttonholes off center. Wooly thinks it's so the band doesn't flop over. There was no way I was going to rip back. Only knitters like me would notice though, so I'm letting it go.
This was another 'shaping without fear' for this year. I was thinking of changing the V neck into a cardigan, but decided to be brave. I'm happy that it's not a huge V, so I know I'll wear it. The colors really pop. Wooly says this is his favorite of all time. I'm feeling lost now that it's done.
So, what's next?! I dug up Marina and found I had buttons tucked inside the box, so I guess I had plans to make it! I haven't started yet, because it's 71cm or 28 inches long. I'm only 62 inches tall. Do the math! I might just make it as written and use it as a coat. It'll be very warm.
