"Henley Perfected" in "Whiskey"
So, I finally finished my Henley Perfected from Interweave Knits magazine. I love, love, loved the Reynolds Whiskey in this pattern. However, even though I got gauge the sweater is a little snug. I'd prefer atleast a half inch of ease all the way around. I don't wear sweaters unless I wear a tshirt or a camisole underneath so the itchiness of Whiskey won't bother me. If you're thinking of doing Henley Perfected in Whiskey I suggest you take into account the "itch" factor. The color is Tobacco and is just lovely in the light. I don't know if you can see it well enough here. I finally sent off my finished pattern to Cast On magazine. I pray pray pray there are NO mistakes in it. I guess we'll see. I did tell you I'd post the free pattern for my eye patch. I will get around to that soon. I have been busy refinishing old furniture and doing the usual spring time sprucing up around here. Isn't spring great? With the help of some great new Hawaian coffee my husband ordered everything is shaping up nicely. :-) My next big tackle is exams this week. Bleh.
