I started this project with great enthusiasm in March when I was on my way to Bangladesh. I knew I’d have several long journeys in which I could work on it, and couldn’t wait to get started with the beautiful Skein Merino/Silk Sport.
It was quite a slow slog in the end, my gauge was off to start with which I realised when I came to pick up the body, so I changed from 3.75 to 4mm needles. This helped the knitting to move along faster too. The pattern is written beautifully and was very easy to follow.
The yarn blocked out slightly bigger which helped with the initial smaller gauge, but due to that and my fairly small shoulders it does tend to slip off a bit. I am hoping to knit another one, possibly in Rowan Pure Cashmere DK (which I managed to get at a bargain price from the excellent Attica Yarns.
