Here is the model Williamette.
I like it because it will look cute with black jeans, as well as with a skirt for church!
Almost done! Sleeves are in progress! The fronts and back are knit on one needle
in one lonnnnng 204st row up to the armpits...then fronts and back are knit independently.
The finishing will involve an applied i-cord buttonband, and that goes for the edge of the slash pockets, too. Have never used it for anything...but YouTubed it and found a good video!
A lady was using it to edge a baby blanket! Really nice!
Here is my the body of my Williamette.
Cute pocket application! First time I've used it. It was challenging to "get it" thru my thick head!
Here are my notes so far. The yarn is Berroco Blackstone Tweed, [COLOR=DarkRed]Cranberry Bog.[/COLOR]
Won't block it til the sleeves are ready. I'm knitting them in-the-round...and not
sure if I'm going to like the width...and I already know I have to shorten
them to 14-15" at armhole bindoffs (armpit) rather than the 19" in pattern!
So that makes it difficult to work all the sleeve increases in time. When I reach
14", I'll put all of the stitches on waste yarn and try on the sleeve. If I don't
like it...I'll start another sleeve with modifications.
In the round...aaargh...but decided to do it. Casting on just 48st...I had
to use a Hiya Hiya 9" circular, US8. Cumbersome little suckers. Hurts the hands
cuz you're essentially knitting with just your fingers. Ouch. By the time I had
increased to 56...I was able to use my KnitPicks Harmony 16" circulars. Ahhhh.
Also, the Hiya Hiya circulars have a round nose tip...and that made the M1 increases a royal PITA. Total frustration. :hair:
