…and time to push myself just a bit more. I’m not talking about the sweater below but the pictures of the sweater below. I learned to use the self-timer on my camera! Ok, stop laughing. For those of us who are “technologically challenged” this is a big deal, a grown up accomplishment. I’m proud of myself. Are the pictures great, not really, but for a first try I’m satisfied.
So here it is…
Again still trying to get the hang of the self protrait thing. I thought you’d see it better with a darker background.
A bit grainy huh? I’ll keep practicing. But all that aside, I love the way this sweater came out. Nice, simple, clean lines, rolls just enough, wide neck, super comfy.
If it looks like I’m falling to the right, I am a bit. I’m was trying to regain my balance after setting the timer and trying to get back in front of the camera (it changed from 10 seconds to 2 for some reason. I’m learning, I’m learning)
There’s the grafting at the underarm, not to bad. But not as good as with wool. The cotton yarn (and light color) shows every flaw. But I was still able to graft it and match up the phoney seam on the body and sleeve.
Two stitch I-cord around the neck.
Pattern: EPS (Elizabeth Percentage System) for Raglan Pullover
Yarn: Tahki Cotton Classic, #3003, 9 skeins (108yds each)
Needles: #7 Addi Circ
Overall, I’m very happy with the way it turned out. Although it’s now too darn warm outside to wear it. The temp in NY was 84 degrees today…a gorgeous day but the sweater will have to reside in the cedar chest until fall.
Moving on, it’s time to get back to the aran coat…remember that one…camp will be here any minute.
