Once I had finished the fairisle yoke, Misurina was finished at great speed!
So happy! 😍
I won’t make you wait for a photo 🙂
I am very, very pleased with her. My fears about the fairisle pattern not showing up in the cream were unfounded – I love these colours – I think the cream goes well with my hair!
I do think some of the detail is lost in the variegated yarn.
Can you even see the purl stitch pattern in this close-up? Although you can’t see it clearly, it does give the fabric a slightly waffly texture…
I love the yarn, the colour and enjoyed making it so where is the problem?! 😜
How did the rest of the Ladderback Jacquard go? Brilliantly!
The LBJ (LadderBack Jacquard) did make the last few rows of the yoke excruciatingly slow and meticulous but the rest of the garment was superfast and easy.
Do you remember I was playing “Tension Roulette”? I knitted with a tighter tension but gave myself 10″ ease. The actual garment measures 39.5″. I’m a 34″ chest so 5.5″ ease – so pretty darned perfect 😁
Here’s some more shots of the finished Mirusina. (The plants behind me are Verbina Bonarensis on the left and cucumbers and cucamelons on the right btw!)
I also knitted the body 4cm longer than the pattern – I wish I’d added a little more – you can kinda see why! 🤣
|Completed Knit Report|

The swatch washed well – I’m sitting blogging wearing it – feels great!
