Blue Napatree Tee progress (3)

I've still been working almost exclusively on this project this week. I'm almost to the next color change. It will be the last section with the darkest blue, and if my estimates are correct it might also be the last section before I start increasing again for the chest. Looking back at my previous version,... Continue Reading →

Blue Napatree Tee progress (2)

I have been pretty solidly focused on this project. That's great, because I've made a decent amount of progress, but it is less great for my other couple projects. So far I've made it through two different color/marling sections of the yarn, which equals about 30-40 g worth of knitting. I'm almost done with the... Continue Reading →

Blue Napatree Tee progress

So far so good with this project. I spent most of my crafting time over the weekend working on it, and made a decent amount of progress. I'm a few repeats into the body shaping, and have hit the first gradient transition. The way this yarn transitions the colors by marling 4 strands is so... Continue Reading →

Blue Napatree Tee started!

This was one of my goals for the month of April. I really thought I'd cast on a lot sooner, but I got very distracted by socks for some reason. My first Napatree Tee is one of the best fitting garments I've ever made, and I am excited to get started on another one. This... Continue Reading →

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 →

Napatree Tee progress (27)

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 →

Napatree Tee progress (26)

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 →

Napatree Tee progress (25)

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 →

Napatree Tee progress (24)

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 →

Napatree Tee progress (23)

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 →

Napatree Tee progress (22)

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 →

Napatree Tee progress (21)

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 →
