My Chocolate Sunrise is done
Yarn: Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in Chocolate
Size 35 with no mods.
Started: 17 March 2006
Finished: 5 May 2006
The pattern was really self explanatory and I think it came out really well. If I made it again I would make a size bigger, so it's longer, but shorten the sleeves. The yarn was perfect gauge but seemed to have really bulky joins in almost every ball. It seemed like they'd glued two strands together to join the yarn. When knitted the join wouldn't bend and created a small hole in the garment. I recommend cutting these joins out when you come to them, then rejoin the yarn by "spit felting". I used that method when changing balls, so I had no ends to weave in. How great is that! More pics on my blog.
