Featherweight is my fourth Knitbot project, and the gauge just seems to keep getting smaller! I started out with the bulky Effortless Cardigan, moved on to fingering weight Walpole and Brise, and now I've arrived at lace weight. For a sweater. It's true to the name though, light as a feather, and I'm sure it will be a welcome addition to my wardrobe come the cooler mornings and evenings in the garden this fall.
Another simple stockinette stitch cardigan that boasts a lack of seaming, the project has gone relatively quickly when I actually have a chance to work on it. I added a couple of inches to the length of the body because my torso is long and there's nothing I hate more than tugging on a top all day because i can feel a breeze on my back. I'm currently in the middle of the second sleeve and hope to finish that and move on to the collar this weekend.
For this project I went with the recommended yarn, Malabrigo Lace. It's my first garment in a colorway of various hues, so it's been interesting to see how it knits up. Unfortunately, I did not realize until I was into the first sleeve that I ended up with two different dye lots. The yarn I joined for the sleeve has a much richer brown hue than the body - I must have been winding the skeins in a dim room not to have noticed it. There was enough for the other sleeve, however, and I think I'll have enough to do at least part of the color in this same cake of yarn so it will at least look symmetrical. It's not all that noticeable unless you're just staring at the garment as you would be if you're, well, knitting it.
If this turns out well, I may add it to my list of pieces that I may someday in the future want a second one of… after I work on some bulky weight projects, that is. Just got yarn in for one yesterday. :) What are you working on?
