Project Description

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Kiyomi Link to website or photo www.twistcollective.com/collection/index.php/component/content/article/90-fall-2011-patterns/919-kiyomi-by-barbara-gregory What are you most proud of? The finishing took 4 days! I loved every minute of it, but yikes! Finishing seems like the gift you give yourself after all the pieces have been completed. It's important to be in the right mood. The jacket fits beautifully. All the swatching, washing and blocking of samples ahead of time, paid off. What advice would you give someone starting this project? The students and I were amazed at how long it takes to knit fabric using a slip stitch technique. It makes sense when you think about, but it takes about twice as long to knit because of the compacting effect that the slipping has. If you want to knit a full garment allow lots of time, and maybe have a quickie project on the go as a treat!
