Swatching

I took advantage of the Christmas holidays to whip a swatch for Autumn Rose. It looks great, but I’m a little below gauge on size 2 needles. I did another small test and I’m above gauge on size 4 needles, so I’m mail ordered some size 3 needles (oddly enough, I dont have any).

The colours are a little much up close, but they look great from a bit of a distance.

Next Weft Colour

And here is the orange weft about 1/3 completed. It’s interesting to see what a difference a different weft colour makes.

Autumn Rose

I’ve ordered the yarn/pattern for Eunny Jang’s Autumn Rose pullover. I’ve ordered the pre-selected knitpicks palette in ‘original’. I’ve never been great a guessing my own colours, and I like the look of this combo.

My plan is to continue the sleeves to full length, and raise the neckline a bit. I might also lengthen the bottom, but I may not need to as I’m a little shorter in the torso than your average bear. I’ll know more once I look at the pattern.

Towels update

I’ve finished the first towel.

The next one will have an orange weft instead of burgundy.
