The Starmore "Kinsale" is finished!


More that a few years in the making because of course I have knit many other things. I finally met a goal that I set to wear it on Thanksgiving. Wednesday night I was sewing seams. Just before putting it on I steamed the seams and I don't plan on doing any other blocking. I love it! The changes I made were picking up stitches for the sleeves. I did not want to sew in sleeves! Also, it was knit a little shorter. I didn't want the tunic length.
Now, for another Starmore pattern! And for those that hadn't read about this on my blog before it's called the "Kinsale" by Alice Starmore and can be found in her book, "Fisherman's Sweaters".
