August Sweater (pre-blocking)

Unblocked and shitty lighting, but aside from the unbearable itchiness (I’ll have to wear a shirt under, as usual), it was a quick & fun knit & I’m well pleased. The lace is from one of those stitch books. I barely changed it & I’m not crazy about it. I’m a literalist. I want leaves to look like leaves. I’d like to rework the lace pattern a bit more & make it with a pocket. I really tried to give it a pocket, but there just wasn’t enough yarn. And I’d like the repeat out of something that can actually touch my skin without making me crazy.

I really do wish I could toughen up a bit.

Pattern: generic top-down raglan with lace panel, no shaping
Yarn: Knit Picks Andean Silk, 5 balls

    Those super-thin t-shirts designed for layering are good under itchy stuff.

    It’s really pretty.

    I love the way the lace panel pulls the neckline into a heart shape. It’s very flattering.
