織這件的過程真的是很好玩呢,不久前在網路上亂逛時看到 Anthropologie 這件粗編小外套 (以下照片這一件,這幾天回去他們網站看已經沒了)

Well, this was really a fun project. Several weeks ago I was browsing Anthropologie's website and came across this Chunky Knit Shrug (they just took it off the site a few days ago, but here's what it looks like.)

Anthropologie Chunky Knit Shrug

看一看覺得,一件小小壓克力毛線衣要美金68元? :O 太貴了吧? 應該可以用更好的線材來自己做一件。 這件看起來作法跟由上往下拉克蘭外套的織法類似,只是要用粗線。試了密度後就開打了,邊打邊試穿來決定如何進行下去。完成後覺得還不錯咧!我自己覺得很滿意,跟我原先想的一樣。以前不喜歡粗線,現在覺得織來真的是又簡單又快,頗有成就感的。不過這件織到快完了才發現它跟網路上另一件同是 Anthropologie 的小外套織法很像(他們好像每一季都會推出類似樣式...) 不同處在於我在腋下脅間有加針,穿起來感覺比較像cardigan而不是shrug.

And I thought - $68 for an acrylic sweater? I can do better than that. After all, the construction looked like the Top-Down Raglan Cardi, in super chunky yarns. So I cast on, and just sort of figuring it out as I knit along. And I think it turned out pretty well, exactly what I had in mind. It was super easy and super fast. I think I am in love with chunky knits now... :) I realized toward the end of finishing it, that it is very similar to the Anthropologie-inspired Capelet (Anthropologie seems to come out with these similar designs every season...) The difference is that I added stitches to the underarm so it would wear more like a cardi, rather than a shrug.

本來想找個和原設計一樣的白玫瑰釦子,可惜這附近的店裡都沒有。就自己用Rowan 4-Ply Cotton 鉤了一朵花縫上去,裡面再縫上勾扣。可是好像不夠牢,扣起來前面還是開開的。我想穿幾次看看,再決定要不要改。

I tried looking for a white rose button, just like the Anthropologie sweater, with no luck. So I crocheted one using Rowan 4-Ply Cotton and sewed it on. For the closure, I used hook and eye. But I guess these are not strong enough, the fronts are still kind of open even with the hook in its place. I think I'll give it a few wears and decide if I need to come up with different ways of doing it.

這組線真的是超柔軟的,跟我以前買過的棉線完全不一樣。這線是在 Knitting Arts 關門前幾個星期買的 (嗚... 這是我最愛的一家毛線店呢...) 線還剩下不少 - 一綑是100 g, 卡其色還剩49 g, 卡其掺白那綑還剩48 g。 不知道能拿來做什麼? 要快點決定,因為這顏色好像快要不賣了。

This Blue Sky Alpacas organic cotton is wonderfully soft, unlike any of the other cotton yarns I have. I picked it up just a few weeks before Knitting Arts closed their doors (sob... one of my favorite LYS...) There are still quite a bit left - at 100 g per skein, the sage has 49 g left and the willow has 48 g left. What can I make with these? Must decide soon, I think these two colors are being discontinued.
