2007-03: Vogue Diamond Pullover reprise

"So nice, I knit it twice" (said with tongue planted firmly in cheek).

is now this.

Yarn: Schachenmayr Micro Color, Color = Nassau Beach,
13 oz/365 gm
Needles: Denise US#7 US#6
Pattern: #10 Diamond Pullover,
Vogue Knitting Spring/Summer 2004
Size: Small Smaller

Almost 2-1/2 years after finishing the sweater, the VK Diamond Pullover is finished. Again.

This time the fit is much better, although I wish it was a little longer, like by one row of diamonds. But it's fine and I've already worn it in public a few times (and to Stitches West!), which is a few times more than I wore the first incarnation.

Something unexpected happened when I reknit the sleeves. I ran out of yarn. Well, that's not completely true. I still had butterflies of extra yarn from each of the diagonals of diamonds, but I ran out of or I misplaced some of the sleeve yarn. Luckily I had the leftover balls of yarn from the first knit in my stash and used what I needed to finish.

I was wondering if I should label this as a FO for 2007, and decided that I should. Afterall, I did remake the sweater and now it's wearable. I'd say that's a finished object, wouldn't you?

  • It looks like a totally different garment! And it's even more flattering in real life.

    It was nice to see you again on Wednesday. Thanks for the spinning and hemp yarn advice!

  • Yup. Photo confirms what we already knew.. V 2.0 brings out the hotness that V 1.0 kept muffled. Very good decision to reknit this and it sure looks good on ya!
