Well, not all in one piece anyway.
I finished the shell I knit last summer from Filatura diCrosa's Antea and Sesia Baby Cottton. The pattern was in the Spring 2004 Filatura di Crosa book with slightly different solid colors. I used a different yarn and made up my own chart. The pattern came with a tiny sketch of a chart, but no real chart for the design, so I plotted it out as best I could.
By the time I finsihed the sweater it was well into fall and I did not relish picking up those stitches. I had a brief urge to finish it earlier this spring, but had lent out my short 2 mm circular needle, so I managed to suppress the urge. It has been waiting for me to finish it ever since.
I do want to wear it this summer and, given that it so hot, there is plenty of time left.
I am actually pretty pleased with how it turned out. It is fitted enough to wear with a suit or tailored separates and it is light enough to wear under a jacket without being too bulky. I tend to knit more airy shells, but I think I will become quite fond of this.
I simply found it hard to motivate myself to pick up all those tiny stitches on size 2 needles.
I actually do like the rolled stockingette edging, which was called for in the pattern, but find that I always get annoyed when the edging doesn't roll consistenty and stay in place neatly. After I finished all the knitting, I went back and hand tacked the rolled edge in place, forming a nice even, pleasing roll. I did not tack the bottom into a roll and just left it to lie flat or rolled as it will. This may not last, depends on my patience level this summer.
The flat pictures that follow are possibly redundant, you can get a pretty good view of the front of the sweater from Matilda above. But I still think the geometrics are better appreciated in two dimensions.
