VK Cabled Shrug WIP

Hmmm... well, it's done. I was really excited and jumped at the chance to start this project despite the fact that I already have several other WIPs. But now that it is done, I am not sure how and when I will wear this. I love the design, the yarn, and the colors. I am just not sure that it is a winning combination when put together. The yarn is a gift from my sister Tracy. It is warm and soft, a very lovely yarn. The colors are amazing, vibrant and yet the transitions subtle. I truly enjoyed knitting with this yarn, the beautiful color transitions made the process so much more interesting. But you know, it's one thing to look at the yarn balls and love the colors, it's a different thing when you are to wear these colors on yourself and go about your daily business.

啊...終於完成了這件"彩虹衣"。拿到這期雜誌時一眼就選定了這件,不管手邊還有未成品,等線一到手就開打了。第一次用野呂英作的線,這還是老姐送的愛心線咧,粉貴的,要是我自掏腰包可能下不了手吧? 線好,又暖又軟,顏色亮麗,每個顏色變化漸層微妙令人驚豔。編織時會想快快織到下個顏色,欣賞變化時的美。設計上也有我近來偏愛的麻花,也不難織。可是織好了,我卻不確定這件衣服什麼時候可以穿出門,這顏色實在是有點太花了... 我好像老愛幹這種事... 沒去想到顏色美在毛線上看是一回事,穿在身上又是一回事...

I don't know why I didn't think of it. I am not a "color" person when it comes to my wardrobe. Most of my store-bought stuff are shades of black, gray, cream, and blues, in single, solid colors. I would never think of wearing this "raindow-like" colors in a million years. In hindsight, I would probably wear it more if it is done in good old-fashion charcoal gray.

不知道為什麼就沒想到咧,我一向是不穿顏色太亮或太花的衣服,我自己買的衣服大多是黑,灰,米白,藍,以單色居多。如果在店裡看到這種色調的衣服,我大概連想都不會想吧。現在想想,這件如果用很安全的灰色來織應該實穿性會提高許多吧。

Anyway. It was fun knitting this project, nevertheless. I made it smaller by working only 4.5" from the upper sleeve to the back, instead of the 6" the pattern called for; and kept the sleeves exactly per pattern. I worked a few rows extra when working the back just so the cables would connect smoothly when I grafted the left and right pieces together. Everything else was pretty much per pattern.

不過,編織過程還是蠻好玩地。這件有刻意織小一點,袖子上方肩頭部位到後背把它從6英寸改成4.5英寸,袖子完全照圖織。為了讓左右片的麻花在縫合時看起來對稱,後背有各多織了幾段,除此之外完全照圖來。

I still have 1 1/3 balls of yarn left. Maybe one of these days I'll go shop for two balls of a different colorway, combine with these leftovers, and make the Noro Striped Scarf. A "rainbow-like" accessory, that, I can handle.

這線還剩下1 1/3球,在想那天有空去毛線店裡再挑兩球不同色系的線,加起來應該夠織我想了很久的Noro Striped Scarf。 衣服不敢太花,配件花一點倒是還可以接受。

這線真美, 織起來的效果也很棒.
不過, 你別擔心穿在身上太亮,
因為你有好身材啊!

哇!完成了耶! 漂亮唷! 是啦, 妳的衣櫃裡是粉少有這種色調的衣衣, 但偶而也變化一下咩!

剛看到妳這毛衣太興奮了, 急著給妳留言, 完全忘了爐上還在熱著東西呢, 直到聞到一股焦味~ 嘻嘻..真丟臉..頭一次咧!

It's gorgeous & I love the colors. I think yours look so much nicer than the pattern.

這個NORO的線,真的很美,這件短外套很有特色,你的手巧更是不在話下,真佩服你要照顧兩個小Baby,還能有空織毛線.

Oh, but I love this! How about wearing it with jeans and a coordinating top or turtleneck? I think it's beautiful.

I am knitting this in 211. To tone it down, pick the color you like best in the sweater, say, greens. Oddly if you get a pink turtleneck (from across the color wheel) so the pinks sort of become part of the background, the greens will pop. Maybe you should take it shopping. Keep it: someday you will be invited somewhere fabulous. Wear it and let them gawk.

Wow, I like it very much, it's so modern and colorful. My name is Solange and I'm brazilian and we like colors.There are so many things in your blog that I liked. I'll visit it, always that I can. A big hug
