I’m hardly ever wishing for cold weather, despite having an arsenal of sweaters. Right now I’m longing for temperatures with a wee bit more chill. Hovering around the 50’s and 60’s Fahrenheit would really be my cup of tea. That’s good playing outdoor weather and is just barely sweater weather. I’m at least ready to wear this Carpino.
I used Cascade 220 Fingering in Olive Oil. I have almost 6 full skeins left out of the 10 I purchased since I wasn’t sure if I’d be doing a larger project with it. If you’re interested, I’m offloading the rest on Ravelry. I love this color but I can’t imagine having two sweaters in the same color since it’s pretty distinctive.
The raglan shaping is a little more interesting than the standard every other row increases, but definitely not difficult. The lace is four rows and memorizable fairly quickly. I enjoyed knitting this, but towards the end I was ready to move on. I didn’t get a great shot of the back, but it’s all stockinette, so you’re not missing much.
I knit the 39″ chest. I’m really missing my pre-baby bust size. Nursing is a fabulous thing that I’m not longing to end anytime soon, but I miss the days of a less ample bust line. I am often struggling to pick a sweater size that will look good on me now and later when the rest of the baby weight and baby-related bust have gone away. Up next is Keaton!
