Although I do like Autumn in general, I don't really like September. I think it is the days that get so much shorter and the realization that summer is really over and done for this year. The students come back into town, I have to teach, not that I can complain about that, since I do not teach a lot, but what I teach is in September… Come October and I'm used to it again, and then the trees start their colour show and I am all for Autumn… But right now, nay not quite there yet….
I finished my last summer project as well… I had to wait for that extra skein of yarn, but it is worth it. Very very wearable, no major changes to the pattern and a terrific colour green…. I have knitted with Hempathy before and I do know that it will get only nicer when washing and wearing it, so that is even better. It is really a very good yarn for lace and this pattern (Pinnate cardigan) has some real nice panels of it.
I did make one change, I did knit the sleeves flat and seamed them later. This as because I didn't want any changes in the gauge. Sometimes I get that when knitting in the round vs knitting flat and since the main body was knitted flat, I felt I better do the sleeves in the same way. So after the sleeve edges (very nice frilly detail there!) I added one extra stitch on each side that is consumed by the seam. It worked out fine.
One excellent thing of Autumn coming…. woolly yarns call me again…..
