Finished Summit!

aug 052

This was one of the quickest, most fun projects I've done in a while. Spun to finished it was less than two weeks!

The Summit pattern is a lot of fun. Like entrelac it involves knitting back and forth over small sections of the piece at a time, so you feel like you've accomplished something every step of the way. I loved watching the color progressions in the yarn!

Here's the Ravelry link, if you want to favorite it or something. RedThread's Handspun Summit

I changed the pattern to a larger gauge to accommodate both my thicker yarn and having not much of it. Not sure of the yardage, I was too excited to count, but it was about 100 grams, light worsted weight. I used size 7 (4.5 mm) needles, and did 6 vertical columns of the pattern.
