Holy cow, this is incredible if I may say so myself, that I’ve got both of my nieces’ Autumn 2015 Sweaters finished, and now waiting for the Equinox photos ~ over three weeks early. And as well, the (green) prototype! I feel like I can just put my feet up a little.
Size 32 in Dusty Grey for Miss Twelve, and size 34 in Ecru for Miss Fifteen.
These are samples of my Calidez pattern which surfaced earlier in the month. In fact this is the first time I wrote a pattern and knit a prototype (posted back in this post) to actually keep while knitting the Equinox Sweaters for my nieces as ‘test-knits’ of that pattern. I tell you, this made it so much easier to knit up my nieces sweaters, with all the decisions done ahead of time so I didn’t have to get strung out with improvising and mistakes along the way. Apparently I’m refining my method!
Now these sweaters will get tucked away for the remainder of the blistering hot last month of summer, and come out to have a stellar photo shoot in Calistoga around the Autumnal Equinox, so watch this space. And now I’m off to make a celebratory cup of coffee to relish a job done & dusted! .
And, for those interested in the technical knitterly stuff . . .
You may notice the two necklines look different and that is because they are ! In fact, I’m in the middle of rewriting the neck section of the pattern for an update, pending on the review it gets from test-knitters about the redesign, and I’ve opened discussion about it on a forum thread on Ravelry …HERE )
