another notch in my (woollen) belt

angelica FO 001

she’s done, she’s blocked, she still smells like wet wool, and my hands are sticky with lanolin. i love knitting, i love wool…

and see what happens when i turn on my brain and don’t drink?

angelica keyhole detail

the keyhole shrank nicely with the detail – i was concerned about the size of it before. (bad focusing, bad)

and i like the button after all

the report

  • pattern: glampyre’s angelica
  • yarn: lamb’s pride worsted in old sage
  • needles: addi natura 40″ #8, 40″ #6
  • started: um, don’t remember, but i will eventually find out
  • finished: 11/18/06
  • pattern mods: see below for keyhole detail, picked up 16 stitches on keyhole instead of 18. i did the m1l, m1r on the sleeves, but not on the hip increases. i wish i had on the hips, too…
  • misc: i loved knitting this… it was fast for a sweater, it is a good cut with interesting shaping! and i need to stop knitting sweaters that are this color.
