Pattern: Plain and Simple by Veera Valimaki
Yarn: Wollmeise 4ply Twin, 2.75 skeins.
Needle size: 2.25mm (yes, that small)
Project time: 10 months approx. a real mojo killer
Alterations: I did some custom side shaping, as the pattern is written with none. Side shaping rocks.
Near disasters: Running out of yarn. I was very lucky to track down the 3rd skein on Ravelry and for it to be a perfect match nonetheless. A very close call.
Learnings: It’s going to be a long time before I knit another sweater in sock gauge. I do enjoy wearing 4 ply garments, but next time I’ll pay closer attention to the gauge needed.
Finally: I love it. It was worth the time and effort and the fit is great.
