This was my new year start for 2008. I was sick on New Years eve day and decided that stocking stitch sweater was going to be a good start. I made half of this back in the day and realized that I did something wrong. I had to rip the whole thing and officially start it all over again on January 1st. This is how it is when you knit when sick. But I didn’t mind, just more to keep me occupied.

Knitting was fast but the assembly took forever.

I still have to find the right buttons for it but I am just so anxious to show it off, so photoshoot without buttons, or doing my hair. Whatever :) It’s the sweater the counts. Photos taken by G.

Salina by Kim Hargreaves
Yarn:
Jo Sharp Silkroad DK Tweed
Needles:
Addi Turbo lace US 3 (3.25 mm) and US 5 (3.75 mm)
Date Started:
January 1, 2008
Date Finished:
February 22nd, 2008
Date Finished Assembly:
April 5th, 2008
Modifications:
Lengthen the sleeves by an inch, the cuffs are a tad bit thicker. No reason other than I just enjoyed the knitting and I had yarn left :)
Will I make it again?
Love the yarn, love the pattern and it looks super cute. I may make another in a different colour in a smaller size if I ever need a smaller size. Here’s hoping. haha. Next time though, I would definitely lengthen the neck a little so it lies a little flatter.

    I really like that sweater. If I ever get off my duff and start knitting, that looks like something I might be able to do.
