Pattern: Harriet from A Fine Fleece
Started: October 12th
Finished: October 28th
Yarn: Austermann Inka, an alpaca/wool blend, from stash, just under 10 balls.
Modifications: I knitted at a tighter tension, so the garment is more fitted (rather a bit too fitted, lol!) , but kept the length. Added waist shaping, decreasing 4 sts each side. I also decreased the armhole depth, making the body before armholes a bit longer. It's a simple modified drop shoulder, so I worked the sleeve top down.
The colour is more of a blue-red and darker than shown. We took them in a hurry - Mr C was about to go out, it had started to rain a bit and was very breezy. I'm wearing slippers, and haven't even brushed the hair! So best of five!
It's a great pattern, a real pleasure to knit. This is the eleventh garment for IntSweMoDo2010. I originally planned to get the final garment on the needles this monht, but have decided to wait until December, and have a whole month off garment knitting, This is the 23rd garment in two years!
