Upside-Down Sweater FO 3

This is the second time I joined Joey's KAL. Not that I didn't see projects I wanted to work on, it's just intimidating seeing how fast everyone else in the group is finishing their projects. Plus I have got tons of projects piling up in my stash... Feeling a bit guilty buying new yarn to start a new project when in fact I have got more than enough projects to last me through next year... But the temptation of new patterns and new designs are hard to resist, especially when there's only limited time when you can get your hands on them... And this is one of those cases.

這是第二次參加Joey的群編, 不是沒有喜歡的作品, 只是每次看到大家完工的速度實在是快的驚人, 而且我自己已累積了許多等著開工的projects... 我通常都是看好作品再買線, 所以我囤積的毛線大部份都是已想好作品了, 只等著開工, 算一算以我的龜速, 這些線夠我忙一整年喔! 可是每次看到新的作品圖樣, 還是有點忍不住, 這件上下顛倒穿設計簡單但特別, 看了實在很喜歡, 於是決定插個隊先織它嘍!

Choosing a suitable yarn and swatching for gauge turned out to be the challenge for this project. The pattern used a fine gauge cotton yarn with a larger crochet hook to achieve the airy look for the lace portion, while most of the FOs in the KAL group used worsted or DK weight yarn resulting in a heavier/chunkier fabric. I tried several options, seen below from left to right: Louisa Harding Grace Wool-Silk, Classic Elite Wool BamBoo, Patons Grace, and Filatura di Crosa Brilla (I did two swatches with Brilla using different size hooks, one in light blue and one in light coffee.) And of course, the one I liked the most is the one I don't have in my stash. A great excuse to visit the LYS and pick up new yarn, and I was glad that they had the exact color I wanted.

選線和試織片密度花了我不少精神和時間, 原圖樣用的是細棉線, 可是看到大家用的好像都是比較粗一點的毛線, 所以一開始實在是不知如何下手, 就從囤積的毛線裡先開始找中細的毛線. 我試了四組線, 下面照片從左到右分別是 Louisa Harding Grace Wool-Silk (最粗的), Classic Elite Wool BamBoo, Patons Grace (織蕾絲洋裝的那組線), 和 Filatura di Crosa Brilla (最細的). Brilla 這組線我用不同大小鉤針試了兩個織片, 一個淺藍, 一個金黃. 結果最喜歡的還是細線, 偏偏Brilla囤積的不夠, 所以還是跑了一趟毛線店, 還好店裡正好有我喜歡的這個顏色.

Nine balls of yarn proved to be quite heavy for such a little sweater, and I have only a tiny bit of yarn left. The weight pulls down the sweater, making it more drapey, which I love. The one thing I did not anticipate is how the ribbing portion looks when I flip it and wear it as a collar. It is a bit too wide and hard to hold in place, I have to wear it more like a cowlneck for it to stay on my shoulders. I don't know how the more "conventional" way of wearing this sweater (i.e. ribbing at the waist) would fit, since I can't try it on right now. I think I will wear it more in the "conventional" way once I get my waist back, instead of the "upside-down/cowlneck" look.

這件衣服用了九球線, 頗有重量, 因為線本身重, 垂墜性不錯. 有一點沒想到的是, 倒過來穿的時候, 羅紋編的領口有點太寬了, 如果像原圖照片裡的穿法, 肩膀上掛不住會一直掉, 要不然就要把領口往下拉. 現在是無法試穿"正常"的穿法(肚子太大了), 不知道穿起來是什麼樣子. 不過我想, 等我生完哪一天真的可以穿這件衣服時, 應該"正常"的穿法會比較實在, 因為我不喜歡會跑位的衣服, 要常常喬來喬去的很麻煩.

I also love the buttons I picked up at Joann for this sweater. They added an even more contemporary look to the garment.

在布店Joann找到搭配的釦子, 更添加了時尚感.
