This is Abria, knit in Queensland Collection Savanna. It’s the first sweater in a while I’ve not been really happy with. There’s a couple of things going on here.
First, I knit the “long” version, which is what I wanted. Somehow, though, the fronts of mine are much “flappier” than all the other project photos, and that’s a thing I hate in a sweater. The ribbing looks sloppy in this yarn – I should have gone down a needle size, or decreased a few stitches in the row before it. I knit this to wear over sleeveless tops and dresses at work in the summer, but the collar stands up more than I was expecting, and I think it might be too warm for me. And Savanna is a silk/linen blend, which means that every single tension inconsistency is visible from the next galaxy.
I also bound off my Trillian today, so that’ll probably be a post later this weekend, as well as the usual weekend nail polish post.
