I finished this fun summer sweater during a lightning storm last week. It's Cinnie, by Bonne Marie Burns of Chicknits.
- long version - size 39 chest.
- I bought 9 skeins of Debbie Bliss Amalfi (70% Cotton, 15% Viscose, 10% Linen, 5% Silk) to provide the 935 yards called for - but only used 8 skeins. Looking at the picture from the pattern, I think I may have short-changed myself in the length of this sweater.
- Size 6 and 5 needles
I think this might be one of those garments that will long bring back memories of knitting it - lots of car trips (and one trip on a bus to the zoo with refugee families), doing the last finishing bits while waiting for my son to arrive home from finding an apartment for grad school next year. Because of the lightning storm, his plane didn't land 'till almost 1 a.m., when the storm had moved on. Lots of time spent knitting, but altogether, a quick project that doesn't look hurried.
