Judging from the date stamp on the first finished project photos, it has taken about 6 months to get this design test knit and published. Well Armed was worth the time and effort, and I really like this one. It is the fruition of one of those preoccupied obsessions of what if….can I….if I do….. and TADAH! It worked. After some tweaks and improvements the pattern has been finally, today, published.
The version shown here is knit with Malabrigo Rios. And I've knit a second using Shepherd's Wool. A third is on my needles using Rowan Summer Tweed, because I think a silk and cotton version will be perfect worn over a sleeveless dress in an over-air conditioned theater or restaurant this summer.
