Ravi - Photo shoot

Ravi is all done and I took advantage of sunny morning to get this photo shoot.
The camera plus the sun amplifies the brown tones in the yarn. Its actually bluer.

Clue 4 was all about the sleeves. I had to frog half the first sleeve as it was too wide and loose. So on the first row I knit together few of the live stitches to minimise the sleeve circumference.
The location of the lace bit is very handy and clever as it allowed me to minimise the circumference without affecting too much the shape and stream from shoulder to sleeve. I also wet blocked it to give it the final neatness.

I was nervous somewhat after I pulled the cardigan from its bath as the garter become over stretched. But gentle patting it to the right measurements plus the drying gave the yarn its former springiness.

The back reaches the mid bottom -exactly where it was intended. Sleeves were knitted to three quarters length but I narrowed them further towards the icord hems

I feel very comfortable in my Ravi . The KAL was superb every step of the way. Thank you Carol :)
