the tide is high and I'm moving on ...

Today, I bring you ... dum dum dum-dumm ... my Tidepool Sweater. From Weekend Knits by Wenlan Chia.
Like I mentioned a couple of days ago, this sweater started out as six hanks of Twinkle Soft Chunky, in icy blue and kelly green. I spent two and a half days knitting it and here's how it turned out.

(Ummm ... brrrr.)
Taa-daa! Blue and green super chunky horizontal stripes may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I truly do love this sweater. And finishing it in a weekend motivated me to knit more sweaters. Especially in this gauge ... they go pretty fast.

  6. Are most of your things hand wash...or can they be tossed in the machine???

  7. thanks! most hand-knits should be treated with extra care (and like any nice sweater from a store, you would probably hand wash things in cold water and let them dry flat.) :)

  9. Love those colours -- such a great finish as well! You've inspired me to buckle down and finish some projects that have been on the needles for a while too long this weekend!
