Notes

The Shetland obsession/addiction continues!

Mods: gauge issues!

Going down 2 needle sizes to get gauge on the body (knitting rib and body on 2.5mm): this gives me a spot-on measurement of 38” at the bust. And after knitting half a sleeve, I’ve ripped back and reverted to a 3mm needle (2.75mm for the cuff) as the sleeves seem a bit too fitted on me.

Also at the join of body and sleeves, I used a 2.75mm needle: Ella suggests going up a needle size for this section, so I want a smooth transition from body to yoke, gauge-wise.

FO: so difficult to capture the colours, particularly the MC, which is a soft, heathery browny-blue, in the poor light at the mo. It’s really lovely whatever, and a wonderful reminder of my time in Shetland in September. The sea photo was taken at the little secluded beach, right below our cottage in Cumliewick heart_eyes
