New Threads Thursday July 11, 2013


 

New Threads Thursday!

Today in Portland, it’s lovely summer sweater weather – 61° – the temps are going up & down all over the place and sometimes you’ll find the AC is still blasting when you least expect it. Instead of reaching for a boring old jacket, it seemed more fun to reach for this…

Here’s a lightweight CINNIE I just finished knitting for my own wardrobe.

I used a cotton/microfiber blend yarn (Plymouth JEANEE DK) that turned out crisp & lovely.

This verison has 3/4 length sleeves! I added a couple extra balls of yarn (@135 yds ea.) and followed the regular sleeve pattern but continued making decreases as directed until the sleeve was about 13.5". Then I finished it off with the regular style ribbing.

Me like! Now it’s my goTo jacket for around town or around the porch in the evenings.

Wishing you a Happy Summer with much fun knitting!
…Bonne Marie
