The finished piece

I finally put the piece together. Well, actually I just had to seam the two sides where the armholes are. I’m very happy with the colors, however, I could add a few more stitches at the bottom of the piece for a more comfortable fit.

But I like how the fabric drapes without the feeling of a heavy garment. The yarn worked perfect for this project.

I’m working on a hat now and maybe a scarf later on using the leftover yarn, but so far I’m not very happy with how the hat is looking. I’m working on the round using the same stitch, but I’m noticing signs of a biased fabric. Hmm… I’m wondering why. Any take on this?

On another note…

My yarn got highlighted in the One Brown Crafter’s Blog to encourage readers to buy and support handmade. Yay! Tracy has been a good supporter of my work through her website. Thank you Tracy!

  1. Oh, that looks cosy! Re: bias, that happens many knitters when working in the round, depending on their tension and knitting style (rs/ws rows tend to balance one another out). A good soaking and gentle blocking should take care of it, good luck!
