Yeah, it has been a while since I finished Kit, but you know how summer is: running around and plans and travel and it can be tough to find a few minutes to take pictures. On the weekend L and I finally managed to be together, in daylight, with a camera, so we dashed out the door and snapped a couple of photos of me wearing Kit.
I love it, and yet I wish it was longer. Next time (and, honestly, I will almost certainly knit this again) I’ll go up a needle size or two and add a couple of inches to the overall length. The only other mod I’d make would be to attach the straps a bit closer to the middle. I’m not horrified by the sight of bra straps, but on the other hand, I do feel weird about wearing this to work without a cardigan or something over it.
Very nice. I like the drape and the detailed stitching. I agree – i would prefer the straps a little closer together.
This looks awesome on, even better than on the hanger or lying flat. Way to go! I would also agree on the potential mods for future (and if I ever get around to knitting this myself, I will be sure to follow your suggestions)
I honestly didn’t think I liked Kit until I saw your Kit!
Oh, what a nice thing to say! I really like that it’s a pattern with good bones, that you can then mod for fit as you like.
Looks fabulous, the color, the fit & all!
i love how delicate the seed stitch looks in this yarn. and agreed – the straps a bit closer together would be a good mod for next time. i think they’d be more proportional for you as well, although this version is pretty nice too 🙂
I finished up a Kit this summer, too, and I love it! I lose the straps occasionally off the shoulder, but I wouldn’t trade that for the neckline which I love. I love your color — mine is a natural shade, but almost bought yarn to knit up a grey or greyish-blue. Nicely done!
I’m thinking of going with a more natural/neutral shade for my second one (look at me planning ahead!) I really like the Euroflax colourway Pewter, since it seems like something you could dress up or down.
Really lovely! The color and the shape are great, and look great on you.
Thank you! I am in love with this colour.
Yesssssssssssss! It looks terrific! I’m with you about the straps. I think the length of mine is growing on me or maybe it’s relaxed and stretched out a bit.
