the Honeycomb Henley

I tweaked Norah Gaughan's pattern from Knitting Nature to shorten the sleeves and by substituting Berroco Pure Merino. I started the sleeve cap shaping at fifteen inches rather than eighteen. Using "combination seaming" (invisible at ribbing and body sides and backstitch for the set-in sleeves and sleeve sides) kept the finishing sane. This was a fun knit. The yarn is smooth and springy and the texture stitch hummed along.

This looks gorgeous! I want to do it in gold with a vintage bee pin on it! How do you like the merino? I just want to poke my finger into it!
