an FO, although Maggie thinks the sleeves would make a nice cat bed. Obviously a cat with excellent taste—the yarn is Kathmandu (85% merino/10%silk/5% cashmere).
This project has been in a long time out because I was very unhappy with the neck. I wanted to continue the K2, P2 rib of the body pattern, but no matter how much smaller needles I tried (then ripped back), the neckband still looked like a very old, stretched-out sweatshirt – ugh!
The final solution was to work K2, P2tog around, then work the neckband in K2, P1 rib on needles only 1 size smaller than the body needles. I like the way it looks, and I don’t think the change in pattern really shows at all.
Now I just need to set in the sleeves, do the seams and it might actually be cool enough to wear it 🙂
