Tangerine Nightmare has a new name to go with its new look. May I present...Sable:
Pattern: Tilted Duster by Norah Gaughan, from the Fall 2007 Interweave Knits. (Except that it's totally different. For details, see here.)
Size: 36. Do not be fooled into believing that, just because you have a 36 inch (or in my case, a 34 inch) chest, knitting this size will fit. The body is narrow and the sleeves cannot possibly be wearable by any normal-sized human. I made these sleeves two inches wider than the pattern calls for, and I have the skinniest arms on the planet, and they just. barely. fit.
Materials: Louisa Harding Kimono Angora in an almost unimaginable orange and magenta colorway. (I'm not sure if it was ugly or beautiful. But staring at it for any length of time did make me feel a little nauseated--hence the dye.)
Dye: One bottle RIT dye from the grocery store, in black, which resulted in this actually quite lovely shade of heathered chocolately brown, flecked with black and purple, which I am calling sable.
Needles: Size 8 US Knit Picks Options circular.
For pictures of the same sweater in its original colorway, please click on the link under "Pattern" above. It's amazing the difference a color change makes! I would be very interested to see which one you prefer.
