Boy have I really been slacking on the posting front. I hope that comes to an end real soon!
Today I have a finished object to share with you, Eva’s Gull Lace Jacket.
I used Knit Picks Simply Cotton in “Bermuda Heather” and size 6 needles. The pattern was pretty simple, but I did put stitch markers every 7 stitches once I got to the lace portion to help alert me of mistakes. I knit in front of the TV, so mistakes happen often. 🙂
For some reason the pattern asks you to cast on the neck stitches over a series of rows. I would have preferred it was all done at once. I think the subtle dip the gradual cast on creates looks messy. I also didn’t like the look of the button flap called for in the pattern, so I made buttonholes instead.
I added 3 little frosted shank buttons to complete the sweater. I think it turned out quite pretty! It looks like it’ll fit Eva right away, so I’m sure she’ll be wearing it out and about this week!
