FO: Damson

I finished my Damson on Monday!  What a nice pattern to knit!  I recommend it... if you don't already have one!  The yarn also was simply exquisite.  What a great colorway for this time of the year!


PatternDamson by Ysolda Teague 
Needles: US 4 / 3.5 mm and US 8 / 5.0 mm
Color: Sprout
Start to finish: March 2012 - June 2012
For: Me
Notes: I used 3.5 mm needles for the entire pattern,
except for the bind off, I used 5.0 mm.

It is smaller than the original pattern.  I only had 100 g of yarn.  So I read notes from other people on Ravelry, reduced the needle size compared to what the pattern calls for, built an Excel file to follow-up the percentage of stitches knitted versus the remaining weight.  This made me confident that it would work out well and it took 90 g of yarn.


Here is a closer look at the yarn and the light variations of purple and red in it!


It looks like we are having a wonderful summer day today!  This week, I only work tomorrow and then, I finally take some days off (for the rest of the week)!  Yé! 

Have a great end of the weekend!
