|Snotty expression is deserved, I think.|
And you're the perfect shade of purply tweed and texture. SO MUCH TEXTURE.
|NOOO YOU CAN'T HAVE IT IT'S MINE!!|
Pattern: Henri, by Ann Leachman for Holla Knits
Yarn: Knit Picks City Tweed in Brouche
Needles: 3.75 mm for main body and 3.5 mm for hems
Mods: a bunch
I'm not going to go into all my of tech and modification details here (although I babble about some of it below). I just rewrote it all up on my Ravelry project page, so if you're interested in things like that, please go check out that link. In fact, I'm going to keep this post pretty light on words because I've been trying to write it for a few days now, and nothing seems good enough for this sweater.
I have babbled about this before, both at the halfway point and when the body pieces were finished. That'll have to do. And the pile of pictures below, of course. ;)
|I reduced the back width a bit, and I think it was a good decision.|
|The sleeves sound up HUGE. I'm okay with them though.|
|Less okay with my sleeve hems. I might reknit those later.|
|One of my mods included adding width on the shoulder and reduce width at the centre front. It's one I've done before in sewing.|
|I was terrified of sewing up the side seams, but it went surprisingly well. Michelle's tech knitting post helped a lot!|
|Look at all of that texture!|
|Don't get the comments above wrong, I adore how this sweater turned out! But we're all our worst critics, and I like to see what I would've done differently to learn how to handle things going forward. :) Live(knit) and Learn!|
