I tried on my Emily last weekend and it is waaaay too big. I looked like a fluffy pig. I have to frog and knit it again. Maybe I can still use the sleeves, they looked quite normal, but the body was much too wide.
I think it will be boring to knit the same sweater again. But it is a beautiful pattern, I want to wear it.
My Woolsthorpe is going fine, I started the right front now. It was nice to make the pocket and quite simple. And I started my first pair of socks. A simple rib sock. I didn’t know if I would like to knit socks, but I am enjoying myself. But the heel will be the most difficult part I guess, I’m not there yet. The wool is really beautiful, it is brown mixed with a lot of other colours: black, grey, blue, purple, but very subtle. It is called Araucania Ranco Multy. It would be nice for a vest too. I am using bamboo dpn’s and they are great to work with, very light.
If I like knitting socks, I am going to buy some more multicoloured sock yarns. I’ve seen some beautiful ones, handdyed. Mmmm…
