Let's talk about the seaside sweater, shall we? First of all, I love this sweater. It is from Twinkle's Big City Knits. The yarn is twinkle handknits cruise, and it is lovely to work with. 70% silk, 30% cotton. The sweater is knit in the round to the armhole, holding four strands together throughout. Very fast, pretty easy. I find it a little difficult using size 17 needles. I feel like I am all thumbs. I made a few adjustments. Longer sleeves are usually a must for me. I also knew I needed to increase from below the bust line to the shoulder, so I knit an extra inch.
