Napatree Tee finished!

I am so excited that this project is done! Even better, it is still summertime and I can actually wear it a bit before the weather changes! It definitely required a few alterations to fit my tastes, but they were worth it because I love the finished product. The whole thing was done with a... Continue Reading →

So. Many. Ends. This is what I get for trying to be fancy and keep the color gradient even, instead of just using the cake as it presented itself. Granted, the final result is definitely worth it, but it doesn't always feel like it when I am wrestling with weaving in so very many ends.... Continue Reading →

It is very strange not having a Granny Blanket post on a Thursday. Maybe I should brainstorm some other big, long-term projects to work on to replace it. In the meantime, you can see how close I am to finishing my tee. I finally made it to the last color of my gradient, and I'm... Continue Reading →

It feels like twenty five posts is an awful lot about one project, but when I looked back through my archives there are definitely a few others that have 30 or more. I'm not sure the posts for this tee will get that high, because I am almost done! I picked up the stitches for... Continue Reading →

Two steps forward again! I was a bit disheartened after having to rip back part of the first sleeve, but it made me focus twice as hard on making progress. Now both of the sleeves are done! I did end up decreasing by 8 stitches, using a smaller needle for the ribbing, and using an... Continue Reading →

Two steps forward, one step back. After a lot of thought, I decided that I would rather take the time now to end up with a finished product that I will be excited to wear. I do want to reiterate that it is absolutely not the fault of the pattern, which is extremely well written... Continue Reading →

I finished the first sleeve! It looks really great, and I'm so glad I decided to keep going with the gradient. I'm still trying to figure out whether I am really happy with the sleeve itself though. It is incredibly cute, but when I'm wearing it the edge of the sleeve flares a little bit.... Continue Reading →

I got both of the shoulders seamed over the weekend, and made a solid start on the first sleeve. Now I'm only a few rounds away from finishing that sleeve. After consulting with a few friends for advice, I decided to continue the gradient for the sleeves instead of swapping to a plain color yarn... Continue Reading →

I am heading into the weekend in a good place with this project. It's just a few rounds away from the shoulder seaming. I really like that in the photo you can see how much I have left of the various bits of the color gradient. Even though it looks like a mess with all... Continue Reading →

Here's today's progress on my tee. I started on the front a tiny bit over the weekend. Now one side is almost done. You can see the wrong side of the back shoulder peeking out at the top. The front is definitely going a lot faster because there are a lot more decreases and there... Continue Reading →

I finished the back of my tee over the weekend! It went pretty quickly once I split for the shoulders. The two sides look a little uneven but I think that is partially because of the way I have them on different holders. I am trusting that once I pick up the stitches everything will...

I tried to capture more of the garment in the photo this time to give a better sense of the color changes. I've finished with the green sections and have moved into the orange/yellow gradient. I've also almost made it to the short rows at the back of the neck. The color changes are still... Continue Reading →
