So I had a wild hair last month and started swatching an idea…
And after a few variations, I stated knitting… and ripping and re-knitting. Until I ended up with this (unblocked):
The wine/maroon neckline is sort of fail, but by the time I knew how it would look I had finally managed to get the grey neckline/yoke area sorted out and I was not ripping it again.
I had knit the sweater to go with the skirt I had knit previously, so then of course I had to knit a hat to match.
Now I just need to knit her some socks. Unfortunately I am thinking I might not have enough grey yarn, which is a horrible thing to think when you are nearly finished the first sock.I’m hitting the end of my enthusiasm for this project, so she might go sockless if I lose yarn chicken. Maybe I will get back to one of the ideas I have had for making her some boots instead. This entry was originally posted at https://tephra.dreamwidth.org/488303.htm
