Semi-FO: Cable Ribwarmer
So, Tanya nudged me out of my petulance, and I ripped and re-sewed seams yesterday. I still have to pick up and knit around the whole shrug edge, as well as the armscyes, but the little thing can be worn. I have to finish my brother's sweater before I can free up the US7 24" needle called for. It does need to be reblocked though - those pin pulls are not terribly attractive.
Pattern: Ribwarmer #28, Vogue Knitting
Yarn: Queensland Collection Llama Seta (88 yds.), 3 skeins
Needles: US6 Bryspun, US7 mystery aluminum 24"
This is a cool pattern, though it would be interesting to see something similar that doesn't rely on the sewing up for its shape. And I like the yarn, though it's not a construction I'm used to working with. The Llama Seta is a ten-ply yarn made up of five double plies. I thought it would be more splitty than it was, though ends and sewing up bits untwisted quite a bit.
