It’s finally finished!!!! And I LOVE it!!!
It was a rather ambitious project to make such heavy modifications but it all turned out just perfect! The sleeves I planned were just right (if only I had followed my calculations properly the first time…) and the shoulder improvisation I did on-the-fly also turned out perfect! I just can’t believe it all worked.
Of course, the Noro colors are beautiful and earthy — such a lovely contrast from my bolder first Trestle. I would totally make this sweater again… maybe in cool colors? The diagonal stitches are pretty cool I think they would make a great sweater all in one color, too. Maybe for a men’s version, in stockinette. But how many of the same thing could I make and wear without appearing creepily obsessive?
