Henley Perfected #2
It's really hard knitting for my mother. She's very small so I'm knitting the 32.5" size with modifications -- mainly shortening the length and the sleeves by about 1" each. She's very picky about how sweaters fit her -- they must be neither too tight nor too loose, they must be long sleeved, and they must cover up most of the area around the neck. She's very intolerant of itchiness in a sweater; I'm crossing my fingers that the alpaca silk will be okay. And she's very indecisive, which means that we spent 40 minutes on the phone the other day, both of us looking at kpixie's beautifully photographed Alpaca Silk skeins, trying to determine the best color for her. But she wanted one so how could I refuse?
I'm zipping along on this. I didn't (gasp!) knit a gauge swatch, instead hoping that my tension hasn't changed all that much since I knit the sample 6 months ago. I'm already about done with the back:
We finally settled on tangerine which I love. It's such a great fall color. I hope she likes the finished product!
The Dragon Skin Wrap is ready to be sewn up. I hope to have finished pictures soon because the wrap itself really needs to go out to its intended recipient.
