This had been sitting on the needles for a while, getting worked on during TV time, at the movie theater, while talking on the phone — whenever miles of plain stockinette was an asset, instead of a reason to gauge my own eyes out.
And then last night, while Sydney Bristow was giving birth on the floor of a bank that was under siege by an international crime syndicate, and MDF and I were drinking sangria, it suddenly became a finished object.
yarn: Sundara worsted merino, in “green over ochre”
needles: 4.5mm Addi Turbo circular
mods: made the pullover into a cardigan!
I liked the twisted stitch pattern on Wicked, but wasn’t sure I needed another sweater that would basically stand in for a hoodie. When I want to wear a sweatshirt, I want to wear a sweatshirt. But start with the truly luxe Sundara superwash merino, add a panel in the twisted stitch pattern, and sew on some button bands, and you’ve got a sweater.
Also, I have to admit I kind of love how … buxom a good cabley sweater makes my modest A-cup look. Not for every day, maybe, but for special sweatergirl occasions. (This is NOT to be confused with the look you get from two giant cables and a row of kumquat-sized bobbles.)
