Tilia is Finished!


She was begun in August and finished today, Nov. 4. This pattern is Elesbeth Lavold's Tilia, knit in Hempathy. I used #2 Addis for the entire piece (except the picked up neckband on #0).


I think the fit is pretty good, just feels a little big around the neck.
Mr. Greenjeans is getting close too.....

I am knitting this in Charcoal Cotton Ease on #7 needles. It is fast and seems like it will be cozy and casual for fall. The cable bottom:

It looks wonderful on you!! What a great fit, I had no idea you were knitting it on #2's, now that's commitment (and totally worth it). I'll be interested to know of your experience with greenjeans, I'm very tempted by that knit.

Lovely! The fit is wonderful. I think the neckline looks good on you. (I am totally braindumping the word I'm looking for... what's the word when something looks attractive, compliments the person...argh! I hate it when the word is *right there* but it's still miles away. Maybe starts with an A?)

Beautiful job on Tilia! It looks great on you...and dang, that really IS commitment. I have trouble finishing my very basic sweater on much larger needles!

Wow! That is impressive! Knit on 2's and 0's? The fit is perfect.

I have been wanting to start Mr. Greenjeans too. Glad to hear it's "quick" ;-) I don't think I have the attention span for tedious right now.
