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: My First Top Down Raglan

Posted by Amber on December 8, 2007

The weather may be frightful, but I was wearing a very warm sweater!

Pattern: A top down raglan generator

Yarn: Nashua Creative Focus Worsted (not really worsted)

Needles: Addi turbo, size 5

Gauge: 5.75 st/inch

Sure, it’s a little itchy – this was my first knit with alpaca. But it isn’t so bad with a long sleeve shirt underneath. I’ve been thinking that I was going to have to unravel the sleeves and reknit because they seemed too big and floppy, but with a shirt underneath it was pretty perfect.

Some detail shots:

(A silly dance, in celebration of all that Lorna’s right behind me…)

The neck could have benefited from some short rows or something.

I have to roll up the sleeves just a bit.

After Jess took the 4th photo of my chest, well… I started feeling a little silly.
