Gray Manos

August 31, 2008

I have alot of Manos del Uruguay wool that was given to me.  I only have a few skeins in the same color though, so either I have to make many small objects, or some that will be full of stripes.  I had about 3 or 4 of the gray one that I made this sweater in, and I figured it would make a nice little something for my daughter.   She wanted a little sweater to wear with a dress she has.  She wanted the sleeves short but not too short.  She also wanted texture, she liked the idea of bobbles but she didn’t want them too big.  I did a few swaps for her to look at and this is what she liked the best.  It really doesn’t look much like bobbles , but it does give some texture, which is what she was looking for.  She is happy with it, she usually is with everything I make her…….I have such awesome kids, I must say!:)

It was my first time working with this yarn and I did enjoy it.  It goes from thick to thin within a few inches so I wasn’t sure how it would turn out, if the finished knitting would look uneven because of it.  It does have a few “bumpes” here and there, but nothing that looks bad, it is just very natural in away, gives it a nice feel and look.

Yarn: Manos del Uruguay, Handspun Wool.  It was a gift from a fabulous knitter.  

Color: Gray.

Needle size: Can’t remember, forgot to write the size down in my notes.

Time in the making: It only took about a week or so to knit, but I did take my time putting it together and sewing the zipper in.  I finished it last spring…..the knitting that is….
