Well Prairie is finally done.
I am not very happy with the finished project. Not quite sure why yet. Maybe it is because it does not look like the picture in the magazine. It was also a pain to knit for two reasons. One, I did not like how the pattern did the decreases for the triangle parts so I had to change that. Two, the pattern was incorrect for the front triangles. If I followed the pattern I would have ended up with no stockinette stitching on the inside of the triangles. So I had to write my own pattern to make it work. Tell me what you think of the tunic? Should I keep it or give it away?
I am working on the front of Prairie. It is coming along nicely. Not much to say about it right now, just a progress pic.
I made a swatch with the yarn to see how my gauge is. I am happy because for once it is right on the mark:)
It has been awhile since I made myself something so I am making the Prairie Tunic from the Spring 2006 Interweave knits magazine. The yarn I am using is Jaeger Siena 4 Ply, which is what the pattern called for. This will be my first time making something out of the suggested yarn. I got a good deal off of ebay.
