This was a quick and easy knit. I spent about 8-9 hours to knit and then steam blocked it. The pattern called for 13 repeats of the lace pattern, I did 14 and had to stretch the fabric a bit to get the measurement. I guess I am a tight knitter, the blunt tips on the Addi Turbos were a bit difficult for some of the k2tog and ssk. Maybe next time I should try other needles.

這件小外套打起來簡單又快, 我大約花了8-9小時完成, 然後用熨斗蒸燙定型. Pattern上蕾絲花樣是重複13次, 我打了14次加上定型時拉開, 才達到想要的長度. 我打毛線可能手勁比較緊吧, 這次用Addi Turbo大號針的針頭太鈍, 有些 k2tog 和 ssk 竟然差點無法完成. 下次要來試試別的牌子的針.


This lace pattern is not difficult, I memorized it after a few repeats. And luckily no mistakes along the way. The only thing that turned out a bit odd was the "yo, k2tog" at the CO and BO ends, the holes at the CO ends were much smaller than the BO ends. Not sure why that is. I kept poking at them to try to make them bigger and more even...

這個蕾絲花樣並不難, 尤其反面都是上針, 打幾次重複後就背下來了, 還好也都沒出錯. 唯一覺得"怪怪"的地方是兩端的"yo, k2tog", 不知道為什麼起針那端的洞比收針那邊要小, 我定型時還刻意地把起針那端的洞戳大一點...


And I am in love with this yarn! GGH Soft Kid knits up so beautiful, airy, and warm. I am tempted to make another in dark taupe, or maybe ivory. And maybe even substituting the Traveling Leaf lace with a different lace pattern. That would be fun! For this lace shrug, I only used maybe 1/3 of the 2nd ball. I wonder what else I can make with the remaining 2/3 of a ball?

GGH Soft Kid這線織起來感覺真的很棒, 輕柔又保暖, 針目花樣清晰. 很想再織一件ㄋㄟ... 上次買線時有看到一個深褐帶紫的顏色很美, 或是乳白色比較容易搭配衣服. 也許換個蕾絲花樣來織應該也不錯. 這件小外套只用了1 1/3球的線, 第二球還剩下不少, 不知能拿來織什麼?

After seeing your pics,finally I realized I really didn't know how to wear shrug! It seemed I have to lift back collar upper and let sleeves wrap my arms more.No wonder my hubby said just somewhere wrong but could't figure it out.Now I wonder to take a new shot again.Yours is quite good and you can wear it soon.Spring coming!!

You are super fast on this one, very pretty. I just bought the same yarn to make the shrug, of course after my Sahara and the Wicked...

So, how did you do at the Stitches West???

To Kate:
妳好, 這線我是在附近一家毛線店(http://www.knittersstudio.com/)買的. 在美國網路上不少商家有賣這線 (如http://www.yarnmarket.com/yarn/GGH_Yarn_Rebecca-Soft_Kid_Yarn- 1089.html).
在台灣我就不知道那裡可以買到這個線了. 也許妳可以在網路上找找看.

To Shirley:
謝謝讚美喔! 當然可以連結我家啊! 有空常來逛逛啊!

To Tcknit:
This one really is easy. You can probably finish it in two days.
Stitches West? Hehehe... you'll have to wait for my posting. It's coming...

Hi Celia
Are 53 stitches enough for arms? I have started to do it, but looks like small for me. How many cm is the arm hole?

Celia said...

B. Zainul: I have replied at your blog.
