finishing the sleeves for the second time was slightly painful but i didnt mind too much - i would much rather have them fit! i also unpicked the hem for the body, picked it up and knit it in rib for a while longer - i had made a very short turn under hem in twisted knit stitch and it was trying far too hard to curl. While it was a pain - ever unpicked twisted knit stitches from the bottom up? awful!- I am glad i made the effort because the bottom hem sits much more neatly now and i don't want any distractions from the delightful cables.
I am quite pleased with the yarn, it has washed up nicely. but anyone knitting in Bendigo Rustic be warned: wash and rinse your finished object carefully as mine bled dye like nobodies business. Took about 12 gentle rinses to come out clearish. But that said, the different coloured fibres are even more gorgeous post wash - do not be detered gentle knitter! just take heed and make rational choices and ALWAYS hand wash ;)
With any luck Rogue will be dry enough to bring along to SnB tomorrow night for a proper, tactile unveiling. hope to see you there too.
