Eastlake

Eastlake sweater is finally finished. I didn't do too good a job at seaming the pieces together, especially the sleeves, but no way am I ripping now. I guess it's just one of those things that comes with years of sleeve seaming practice. But let me tell you - knitting a sweater for two months and then having to sew the whole thing together at the end - not fun. Especially the stupid sleeves. But no more moaning, let's see some pictures!



I used Sublime Yarns Extra Fine Merino Wool DK, lovely yarn to work with and very soft. I hope it will last and not get all shabby after two washes. 




The pattern was great, easy to follow. I bought the Berrocco Woodland Gothic book especially for the Eastlake pattern, but there are at least three more cardigans in there that I'd like to knit. But I have no suitable yarn in my stash. Why is that always the issue? I've got buckets full of yarn, but when I find a pattern that I like, somehow nothing in my stash suits it. What a cruel stash-joke.

  1. za šivanje rukava treba ti jednostavno malo strpljenja i ništa više. Najbolje je podijeliti rukavni otvor na 4 dijela, jednako tako i rukavnu kuglu, Komadićem vune označi te četvrtine. Nakon ttoga prisloni rukav na otvor i pričvrsti provizorno na označenim dijelovima. Nakon toga slijedi šivanje.

  2. Džemperak mi se jako dopada, kako kroj tako i boja. I kao što rekoh na Ravelryju, odlično ti stoji!
