Let there be peace

Happy New Year!

Yesterday I finally knit the tubular bind off row for my Let There Be Peace jumper! Today I wove the ends in and worn it.

The project notes are on my Ravelry project. Here are some photos (before washing and blocking)

The pattern is In Stillness by Alicia Plummer – nice and not very difficult. I would definitely knit this pattern again because it’s a very wearable one.

I substituted the required yarn with one from my stash; the fabric in my sweater appears denser than the one shown in the original pattern, but it’s still nice and soft. The wool I used didn’t match the pattern gauge, so I did a little swatch and went to town. In order to achieve my size (approx 36 inches, 92 cm, UK 12-14, or Medium) I followed the instructions for the smallest size (29.25 inches or 74 cm).

The jumper was started in April 2020 and really dragged on more than necessary – mostly due to long breaks in between.

Although there are a few less-than-perfect details in my making, I do like the result, the fit and the colour, which from afar it looks like gray but it’s a melange of beige, light and dark blue. The fabric gently hugs the figure without being tight.

Overall a very wearable piece. And it’s nice to make one’s own clothing 🙂

I wish you peace and health in 2022.

  1. It turned our perfect. I see the flecks of colors in it and they are lovely and soft. It’s a perfect over a collared shirt sweater. Congrats on the finishing of it. It always feels so good to say “done”. Happy New Year. Let there be more pretty things created by your hands this year.

    I know I already told you but I love it so so much! It looks great on you, and style and colour look fantastic (Alicia Plummer has so beautiful designs in general). You are already working on another one, right?

      Hallo Julia, thanks for your kind words! I’m very pleased with it despite some little imperfections 🙂 Alicia has indeed some very nice patterns – I think I will knit some more one day .
      Yes, I started something completely different, a mohair jumper from some funky vintage yarn I had in stash. It’s quite quirky but I like it anyway 🙂 I’m just waiting to retrieve some other vintage mohair from my storage as I run out and will use that to do the cuffs and hem.
      Thanks and take care xx
