Two FOs for today.
First up, yet another pair of vanilla socks. These are in Plymouth’s Neon Now yarn. They were MUCH brighter before their wash – the water was almost neon pink when I took the socks out to dry. They’re still pretty bright, but I admit this does make me a little apprehensive about the many balls of Regia Fluormania I have been hoarding.
I actually finished this sweater a few days before I finished the socks, but it took FOREVER to dry. This is Reversible, knit in Shibui Heichi. This turned out okay but has two major issues: the yarn is 1) discontinued and 2) 100% silk. It drapes nicely but doesn’t have a lot of stretch, and the amount I had was pretty much it. It is about an inch shorter than the pattern indicates. The neckline is also huge. I might try to pick out the neckline trim (I did the one in the pattern) and reknit a ribbing or something, but I feel like it isn’t really going to help pull the neckline in at all. Also, in the photo of the back I can see that my skeins didn’t totally match, but since that photo used a flash and the front photo didn’t, I think this probably won’t be noticeable.
I’ve got nothing else even remotely close to finished (these two projects finished up all my WIPs and I’ve since started a new set) so there’ll be a WIP post next week along with the usual nail polish post this weekend.
