Destination South Park Henley, Day 1

The destination is South Park Henley. This is one I’m “designing” myself with assistance from The Sweater Workshop by Jacqueline Fee. It’s knit in the round from bottom up using Cascade Eco Duo in Koala colorway.  I’m using sizes US 5 and US 7 needles. I started this earlier and have knit about 5 inches so far.

I anticipate knitting about 4500 stitches a day (20 body rows) and am  allowing 15 days to finish it. Folks ask sometimes which I pick first the pattern or the yarn.  Sometimes it’s the yarn and sometimes the pattern.  Recently I have tried not to buy yarn without a project in mind.  On this project I petted the Eco Duo one day at Gate City Yarns and came up with a project quickly. My first thought was to knit a vest but a friend suggested that the yarn was soft and should be worn against the skin. On the drive home I realized she was right.  Since I have wanted to knit a henley, the henley became the project of choice. This yarn is supersoft undyed alpaca and merino blend. As you can see it “stripes” subtly.

I also finished up my Whitfield Shorty for my great-nephew’s Christmas gift.  I used Berroco Vintage and dinosaur buttons from Tessa Ann Designs.

I haven’t finished my 20 rows for today so till next time, no frogs, no tinks, just knits.
