Dandelion Trestle Love


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.

For all the gory details about the sleeves, see the first progress post; and for the much swifter shoulder process see the second progress post.

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?
