WIP WEDNESDAY: Miette

I’d been saving up all summer for a new dress, and it finally arrived on Monday.

 

Cute, right?

Since our office has the temperature of a meat locker (and since Winter Is Coming, John Snow), I decided to knit a cardigan to go with it.  I opted for Miette, a cardigan designed by Andi Satterlund, since it was simple enough, it was a top-down raglan (easiest sweater in the world to knit), and the pattern was free.  Plus, I like Andi’s patterns.  Some people are stans for celebrities; apparently I am a stan for knitwear designers.

I knit this from Spud & Chloe Sweater in (I believe) Lake.  I used yarn that I recycled from my ill-fated attempt to make the Rayleigh Tee from Knitscene.  

In working on this, I learned that I vastly prefer working lace with charts.  Whenever I have to include lace in something with written instructions, it takes me a few tries to get the lace to work right.

Wonky lace is wonky.

The lace pattern on the right was supposed to be staggered. I guess it looks like I have a butterfly on my shoulder now?

On the bright side, the sweater fits me, and I learned another way to make a boob vent.  Way to go, me.
