The past couple of weeks of have been some of the most stressful in memory. Knitting an easy thing for a few minutes at a time was just about all I could manage. Luckily, just that little bit enabled me to finish the green version of Something Silver. Garter stitch is very soothing, no thinking just doing. I just knit until I ran out of yarn.
The green yarn is from the stash, it’s Lana Grossa Merino Big Superfein. It’s a nice yarn to work with and it knit up a bit stiff for me in this pattern and needle size. But when I washed it the drape came out. Lucky for me I must say. This style of sweater lends itself nicely to a bit of swing and drape.
The pattern is good, as you would expect from Veera. Nothing weird or complicated and error free as far as I could tell. The only mod I made was to make the sleeves a bit shorter since I didn’t have enough yarn. In fact I knit the pocket backs in burgandy yarn. It’s actually a cute little detail when it peeps out during wear.
The buttons are from the button box, so this really is a green version of Something Silver. Sadly, it’s about a million degrees outside so this will be a cardie for after sundown. Thank you fog!
