Yarny Goodness!

Another super exciting fun knitblog

  • November Knit Goals

    I'm prone to being a scatterbrain, so I try to make a short list of things to accomplish each month (lest I have 27 different non matching socks).

    Same as last month: Sleep more. Study more. Knit more. Sleep more.

FO: Janda!

Posted by Amber on January 16, 2007

Let’s see. I started (and finished) knitting this back in September. I finished the seams in November. I wove in the ends this past weekend. yes. It took me months to weave in ends. So much for not another Frankensweater!

Janda and the Giant Wall of Karabella.  Janda might be happier in Karabella

Pattern: Janda by Amy Swenson (Knitty, Spring 2003)
Yarn: Rowan All Seasons Cotton. 6 balls purple, from eBay (seller: brahms123lullaby; I actually got the whole bag for less than $60). 6 balls gray from Stitch DC (during their end of summer Rowan sale!)
Mods: I left off the racing stripes on the sleeves, because it seems I’ve forgotten how to crochet. But I think the white I picked up would blend in with the light purple. The texture (from columns of purls) is just fine with me. Although, if I did it again, I might include the stripes, but use intarsia instead. Also, I’d start the neck shaping a bit lower, as it sits right on my neck. I’d also make the sleeves a smidge longer (but I’m sure they’ll grow over time). The hood is a little pointy, but nothing too atrocious.
Time to knit: About two weeks. Such a quick, satisfying knit!
