Lockdown Flashback #2

For this Lockdown Flashback, let’s look at a post written way back in May of 2013: Venetian Audrey modelled. I had knitted a beautiful pullover for Emma while she was away at her first year of university, but although I had posted about the knitting process quite a bit, I was unable to get any modelled photos of the finished pullover until she came home for the summer.  The sweater pattern is called Audrey and was designed by Kim Hargreaves.  I’ve actually knit Audrey twice; the first time for me, followed a few years later by this version for Emma.

I am especially proud of this knit.  I had to do extensive re-writing of the pattern to get it to fit her (and to convert it to the round).  I was very concerned about getting the fit exactly right, and as it was knit entirely in rib and Emma was not around to try it on, it was not an easy task.  It took endless measurements, lots of patience, some ripping and re-knitting, and a fair bit of math. I think it was worth it: don’t you?


Keep well everyone!

  1. Yes, definitely worth it! this is absolutely beautiful and your daughter has something unique, made by you just for her. I’ve yet to knit something for my daughter and I hope to do it soon. She’s so busy with her family and job (even during this coronavirus time) that it’s been a low priority to look at some patterns together. She’d love it, though, and I’m gathering a few I think she’d like so it’s easier to pick.
