The toe sweater

Monday, 10 October 2016

So the second toe procedure is now done and dusted and was definitely more successful than the first. The biopsy came back clear and the recovery was much faster and less painful. I highly recommend skipping the first and going straight to the second, tee hee.

But the time I spent off my feet was definitely not wasted. If you follow me on Instagram you would've already seen this but for those who don't, here is the result!

Introducing the toe sweater! The pattern is actually the Ravello sweater from knitwear designer Isabell Kraemer but the new name seemed appropriate.  I seriously loved this pattern. It is knitted in one piece, perfect for a first time garment knitter like me and no seams to sew, yay!

It is knitted in fingering weight yarn (4ply to us Aussies) so you would think it was a slow piece to knit given how smaller the stitches are but it only took 4 weeks of somewhat casual knitting. Sure there were some days when I got through a lot, especially at the beginning and the end, but for the most part there was only a bit done each day.

If you want all the details, it's Ravelled here.
