- Knit the body piece in the round.
There is no special techniques of any sort to add for this project. Love Noro Silk Garden colorway but not too crazy about the yarn itself. If you rememeber, I complained about the weird pieces of woods that are stuck in the yarn all over. Thankfully, they do seem to wash out from the yarn as I see quite a bit of those wood floating in the water when I was wetting it prior to blocking. I was quite obessed with it and I always pluck out those wood pieces if I felt them in the yarn during knitting. I also am not too crazy about the variegated thickness of the yarn.
However, I have read and heard that Noro Silk Garden soften with each wash. So will see how it will be one year from now.
And please ignore the background of the 2nd pic! The bathroom is the most brightly lit area in the apartment after dark.
Overall, I love the sweater. The body fits me just right. The sleeves are a bit wide and I already expected that. I probably should have made it narrower and increase it for the shoulder part. Oh well, too late for that now. And I love the colors, so pretty.
It might made its official debut outside of the apartment on tuesday since the high is only going to be 37F(~3C).
