So here's what I started after I frogged the ill-fated Pip:
Of course, it's another Kim Hargreaves design! This one is from Whisper, the spring book released in 2011. It's called Cameo, and it's a short open jacket with deep raglans. Here it is on Kim's lovely model:
I've wanted to make this sweater since the book came out, and just before getting this spring's book, I ordered the yarn to make it. Then I got distracted with the new release! But since Pip didn't work out for me with the yarn I had on hand, I came back to this.
The sweater is knit in Rowan's All Seasons Cotton, a cotton/acrylic mix. It's a yarn I've used before, and while I don't especially enjoy knitting with it, I do love the final result - it's a great weight for spring and summer and quite easy to care for. One of my all-time favorite sweaters was made with this yarn. It's a little more tedious this time because I had to go down a needle size to get gauge, so it's all quite stiff. But I love this fabric:
I've been having a lot of missteps lately with my knitting, so I'm really hoping I can stay on track with this and actually finish it!
