rain or shine sweater

Friday, November 15, 2019

Back in September I spent a few days in Nashville.  Of course, I hit one of the local yarn stores, Bliss yarns.  The store was lovely.  I love when a yarn store has a lot of updated sample sweaters.  Really makes it inspiring and changes the shopping mood.  (Take note yarn stores!)  Upon walking in,  I immediately spotted a sample of the Rain or Shine sweater and knew I wanted to make one for myself.

The lovely owner let me try on her sample.  (Another benefit of having samples!) It just felt so good.  Not at all binding.  Super light and flowy.  The drape was a dream.  I inquired what yarn she used and asked for her to share her notes.   She used Manos Del Uruguay, Milo, which calls for needle size 4-6 however she went up a size in order to achieve the drape she wanted. 

I cast on at the beginning of October (October 2)and gave myself a month deadline.  (I LOVE a goal!) Happily finishing on October 31!  It was a dream to work on.  Really super easy with a memorable pattern repeat.  At one point you have a lot of stitches on the needle but just round and round you go!  It was also a surprisingly easy knit to travel with as well.  It just seemed to melt into nothing.  Thank you Milo!

Pattern:  Rain or Shine
Yarn:  Manos Del Uruguay Milo color 12800, Natural 3 skeins.
Needles:  US 7
Gauge 5 st = 1"
Size:  Size 1, cropped
Mods:  As per the shop owner at Bliss Yarns, I went up a needle size.  This threw off  the gauge  but since it is such a boxy sweater, it didn't matter.  I was going for the drape, not necessarily the fit.

Happy Friday, friends!

  5. I really want to thank Dr Emu for saving my marriage. My wife really treated me badly and left home for almost 3 month this got me sick and confused. Then I told my friend about how my wife has changed towards me then she told me to contact Dr Emu that he will help me bring back my wife and change her back to a good woman. I never believed in all this but I gave it a try. Dr Emu casted a spell of return of love on her, and my wife came back home for forgiveness and today we are happy again.
