Finished in time for Mum’s birthday yesterday. She was shocked, not expecting to see it done before next year at least. More than once, I hid the growing thing so as not to ruin the surprise. I’ll post some action shots soon: this is a garment that can be worn inside-out, upside-down and back-to-front. Both Dad and Isaac expressed doubts, unconvinced by my arguments for deconstructed fashion.
The pattern is an easy one. I strongly recommend using a circular needle, but I still found it somewhat hard on my hands. Even though large gauge projects move quickly, I find large needles awkward to manage. I’m back to the last few repeats of the False Entrelac Scarf. Using 4mm needles after 8mm ones reminds me of the feeling of walking in one’s own shoes after an hour or two on the ice rink in a pair of rented skates. Bliss.
