I’m happy to show my second teal sweater of the month, Blank Canvas. The yarn is Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool in Bahama Blue. It feels nice right next to my skin, and I hope the silk/wool blend will lend itself to some springtime wear. You can read more specifics about my modifications on my project page. I made the 34″ bust size, but added about an inch and a half in length, and did one less waist decrease.
This shoulder shaping is simple, but genius. Ysolda really knows how to help people get a good fit. It fits me better than a traditional raglan, and it really only required a tiny bit more attention than a raglan would.
I’m finishing up a couple of sock WIPs and I’m trying not to cast on anything new, because I’m a volunteer knitter for a historical knitting project and the yarn should arrive any day now! I will allow myself to cast on socks when I finish what I’ve got going, because c’mon, I’ve always got to have socks on the needles. It’s very exciting to be part of the project and honored that Annie asked me to knit something. More details on that soon!
