pink memories

Tuesday, February 07, 2017

Finally, I finished Pink Memories.  I had an issue with the yarn and while waiting for a replacement, lost my steam.  Was glad to pick it up again and finish the sleeves. 
This sweater is sold as either the individual pattern or as a kit.  I ended up buying the kit, but had a few different dye lots of yarn.  (You can buy it with two different shades of pink.) She was wonderful to work with and ended up sending more yarn suggesting I alternate yarns to make the yarns blend a little better.  Can you see it?! 
I adore the little pocket.  You can see the bit of striping better in this photo.  It doesn't really bother me.
While the front is a garter stitch, the back is stockinette.  A purl row up the sleeve gives it a look of a "seam".  Not sure that is completely necessary.  But, might be a nice added bit of interest.

Patten:  Pink Memories
Yarn:  Came as a kit.
Needles:  US 4 and US 5
Mods:  Didn't really make any.  Not sure why, but my neck is a bit "tighter" than I would like.  I may end up re-doing the neck.  Just not right now. 😁
We are headed to the Grand Canyon.  I am so excited!

  3. Congrats on finishing your Pink Memories sweater. I think the different dye lots give it an interesting tonal quality and not a distraction at all. I hope you have a wonderful time in the Grand Canyon!

  4. That looks really cute on you and so sweet and cozy! I agree about the arm seam, I think I would probably just skip it.

  5. It's very interesting how basic knitting gives a bit of visual interest to this design. I love this soft pink.
