So, I knit this sweater in the span of 3-4 weeks in early October. It is the lovely Seacoast design by Joji Locatelli for Broolyn Tweed. I knit it, in part, to join in the Joji knit along on Ravelry. So, I've had this sweater finished for over a month, and my kiddo took the photos last week. Now when do I decide to upload the photos and post them to the knit along thread? Why that very last day for entry, of course!... when Ravelry hasn't been up and working all day.
Oh well. That's what I get for my typical procrastination.
I followed the pattern exactly except for lengthening the sleeves for my monkey arms. I have an entire skein of yarn left over and am toying with the idea of knitting on to the ribbing at the bottom for a real tunic length. That's the beauty of a top-down construction.Malabrigo Merino Worsted in the Ravelry Red color. I hemmed and hawed between Malabrigo Merino Worsted (non-superwash) and Rios (superwash). In the end, I went with the classic non-superwash. I purchased it online and didn't realize it is a single-ply, though. It seams sturdy enough knitted up, but it has a slight velcro-like tendency whenever it comes in contact with dog hair, and we have lots of dog hair around here.
