Imogen Comes to Tea*

Not the best pics ever, but Tech Support didn’t get home until just after 6pm, and the light was going, so we had to be fast. This should give you an idea, at least. I love the way the colours work in the back.

The Vital Statistics

Cast on: January 1st, 2011.
Finished: March 22nd, 2011
Pattern: Imogen, by Perl Grey (Ravelink)
Yarn: Bendigo Woollen Mills 12 ply, similar to Rustic, in a burnt orange multi. Bought in the Back Room last July.
Needles: 5.5mm Knitpicks Options
Modifications: None. Worked this from the pattern line for line. I was a bit worried that the back was going to be all baggy, but it blocked out nicely. Note to self: never underestimate the magic of blocking!

I don’t think I’ll be wearing it for a while yet – the weather is till too warm and humid to even think about a big, snuggly 12-ply wool jumper!

*Bonus points for anyone who can tell me from which book I got the title of this post.

    Wow, the colours are very fantastic and well done for trusting in the pattern. Such a lovely cardi!!

    Lovely cardigan – blocking is such a wonder, isn’t it?

    I can tell you the title of the book because I used Wikipedia but maybe someone can answer honestly so I won’t say; the author used the pseudonym Susan Coolidge (and wrote “What Katy Did” – a book about the author of this blog perhaps? LOL)

    Imogen has lovely colour transitions across the back, she’ll be keeping you warm at Bendi this year!
    Well done on finishing her up in the warm weather you’ve had this Summer, that would have been an effort in 12ply!
