Yes, I would like to announce the completion of my Onde sweater and and end to the "Onde" puns. I fear the end of the puns is garnering a heartier reaction.
Yarn: Phildar Onde
Pattern: Phildar Tendances Printemps 2004, Model #1 (The yarn and pattern book with English translation was purchased at Knit N Tyme in Canada).
I found this yarn very pleasant to work with and the resulting knitted fabric has a very nice drape. It is very difficult to photograph the color accurately, but the color change is really quite subtle and fun to anticipate in the knitting up. I am still toying with sewing a strip of white ribbon over the collar seam to hide it a bit. I guess it's only really noticeable to me, but it's such and easy fix. I worried that when I sewed the snaptape in with the machine, the knitted fabric would get pulled out of shape by the feed dogs of the machine. I sidestepped this potential pitfall by putting strips of tissue paper between the feed dogs and the sweater. This bit of fashion school knowledge worked great and no puckers were seen. Bottom line - fun knitting!
The Onde...(I couldn't resist)...
