kind of garment,
I kind of lucked out.
and is Brown Sheep Naturespun fingering dyed with walnut in a range of values.
Some of it went into this tapestry:
but this stuff (in lieu of or with handspun), is lovely.
I started with three partial balls.
Cast on with the dark brown and knit till I ran out.
Decided it was long enough.
Separated front and back for the armholes.
Switched to the next value.
Knit till the armholes were deep enough (with a little neck scoop on the front),
Grafted front to back.
Divided remaining yarn into two equal balls.
Picked up sleeve stitches and knit till I ran out.
Divided the last ball of yarn into two equal parts.
Knit till I ran out.
both because and in spite of the ridiculous easy pleasure of making and wearing.
but at 175 grams (6.25 oz),
it's an ideal garment for the 'cool' mornings of HOT summer days.
