Part of the current project – Neptune, in a colour I love [intense, luscious and beautiful… black] and in a wool I adore. Softly variegated, the rich, dark tones look even nicer in reverse stocking stitch - less defined, subtle.
It has incredible colour and texture and is knitting up differently than imagined. Better. Much, much better. Perfect I would say. A simple piece that gently falls away from the body, without being oversized or baggy.
I could’ve shown the entire front [and back] but it really needs sleeves to make it a whole. And perhaps different buttons [these are the original metal SKIF buttons that came with the pattern].
Oh, and did I mention the colour?
