Mim's Knitting Frenzy

Follow the dark and skeery path into the dank recesses of Miriam's mind. There you will find many a knitting needle and the occasional ominous crochet hook. Sinister looking book presses and towering stacks of paper. Where various handcrafts lurk waiting to pounce on the unsuspecting...

Rogue complete!!

Here she is!

Pattern: Rogue found at www.girlfromauntie.com
Yarn: Peruvian Highland Wool in Oxblood purchased from Elann (13 skiens)
Needles: US Size 7 clover circs, and US Size 5 Addi Turbos for facings.
Modifications: I wanted a smaller gauge, so I ended up with 5 spi instead of 4.5, but still got the same row gauge (6 rpi), so I knit the 39.5" size and it turned out perfect. I also made the sleeves longer to fit my gorilla arms. Now the sleeves hang the perfect length down my hands. I also made the hood slightly deeper so it would fit all my hair. Oh... and I opted NOT to do the pocket. Certainly don't need the extra bulk around my midriff!
Verdict: Sooo Fabulous! As warned by a couple people, the Peruvian Highland Wool pills a bit, but I'll just buy a sweater shaver or something, because it fits wonderfully and C says that although he hates sweaters, he thinks this one is fabulous. I'm so happy with it! :D
