Katherine Komplete



I have finally finished Katherine after a long 10 month journey. Granted more off than on a good bit of the time. I am actually wearing her as I write although she grew a bit during the blocking process. Even decreasing the pattern by one full repeat she falls to my midthigh. I am considering felting her a bit to give her a good all over shrinking.

I have added all of my colors and suggestions for future knitters on my Ravelry projects at LorriAnn. Hopefully Ravelry will be accessible to everyone soon but if you need any information in the meanwhile feel free to write me.

Next on my standed que is Shirt-Tail Hemmed Pullover from Sweaters From Camp. I have stashed the yarn for this for awhile and am looking forward to it.

Lorri, Catherine is absolutely beautiful. Next time I come through MI I'm stopping by for a look-see IRL.
You should be proud.

KATHERINE is stunning! You did a very nice job. I will add you to my Ravelry friends so I can read more of your knitting details.

Katherine turned out really beautiful - even looks fabulous on you when it only had one sleeve :)

I don't know if you have tried to full it yet but I read on *someones* blog a similiar issue with growth after blocking. She reblocked without a woolyboard - laid it out flat and gently smoothed it keeping it as dense together as possible and still pretty flat. When it was darn near almost almost dry, she tossed it in the dryer by itself for a few minutes at a time and checked it to make sure it wasn't actually felting. She managed to get an adjustment of over an inch this way with no apparent change in the garment. Just some reading to pass along. I hope everything turns out great in the end, it's a beautiful sweater and you must be so pleased :)

Oh my, this is lovely, my you have knitting stamina - a sweater like that would take me forever. (I like at least worsted or a chunkier yarn). I love all the colours!
