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.
