humulus

Love Love Love this sweater.  The process.  The finished product.  All of it.  I love that I realized that German Short Rows are definitely the short row choice here.

And I'm not gonna lie.  I shrunk it a little (by accident) while blocking.  You see, I always block using the washing machine.  I put the machine on the hand wash cycle.  And then I put it on the spin cycle to get all of the water out of the fibers.   And I'm not sure what exactly was happening with my machine, but it spun it and spun it and spun it and in the process it shrunk it a bit.  It was a bit bigger and boxier before the blocking.  Now, not so much.  However, I like the fit.  I'll keep it like this for a while.  Maybe trying to block it out a little bigger in the future.

  4. This project is definitely in my future so thank you on the German Short Row tip. I've always loved the gray and navy color combo for this sweater. I was actually trying to decide the other night what I should do. Think your pic pushed me to either gray and navy or gray and black. Thanks! And despite shrinking a bit this sweater still looks great on you.
