Finally the long-awaited pictures of Audrey shall be revealed! (Sorry for the delay. This has literally been the week from hell at work. 11 hour days are not fun)
The last time we saw Audrey she looked like this:
The Heather came and taught me the miracle that is the mattress stitch.
Like a good girl I did the raglan seams first
(It still doesn't look wearable)
Then I did the arm and side seams and voila!
It's a sweater! But a rather indecent one so I decided to knit the lace neck edging rather than risk flashing the world.
The lace took way too long and sewing it in was a painful process (mainly because I was so anxious to be done) but the end result was totally worth it.
Look! A finished sweater!
A close up on the lace edging (which I forgot to block) and the sexy darts.
Pattern: Audrey from Rowan 35
Yarn: Rowan Calmer in the Calmer colourway (I used the recommended yarn for once!) 6.5 balls
Date Started: End of February-ish?
Date Finished: March 25, 2007
(This would have been a much faster knit if I hadn't been so busy this past month).
This was a very well written pattern and an enjoyable knit. The Calmer was a joy to work with. It's so soft and sproingy which is strange because it's mostly cotton! I think this is my favourite sweater so far and the one I'm most likely to wear a lot. It got stretched out from wearing so I'm hoping that a wash will set it to rights again.
