honeycomb 002

Pattern: Honeycomb, Knitty Spring 2008
Yarn: Jo Sharp Classic DK Wool Heather in “brocade”
Needles: #4 for ribbing, #6 for pattern
Dates: December 30-February 13

I had intended to give this to my mom for her birthday (or mine, a week later) but there just wasn’t enough time. So happy Valentine’s Day!

I took a break from this project to do Multnomah and start February Lady because I was seriously considering re-doing the arm holes.  They just seemed awfully big, in a way that wouldn’t be flattering.  In the end I just decided to do a greater than average amount of ribbing around the arm holes and neck holes, and it turned out fine.

This is the same yarn I used to make Glasgow Lace 3.5 years ago and it’s been sitting around ever since. I knew it had to be something for my mom, it just took me awhile to decide what!

  1. Just lovely! The ribbing looks really nice on the armholes — I think it was a wise choice.

    Great color — so different from the one in the Knitty pattern.

  2. I LOVE this! I so wish i could knit, but it looks like it’s not in my genetics 🙂 Or either I’m probably just lazy… it’s just that knitting is so much slower compared to crochet!
