from Interweave Knits Fall 2007
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran 10 skeins
Needles: sz 7 (luckily bought in a Dutch craft store when I realized I brought sz 8s!)
Notes: By the end I was sick of Moss Stitch, but I get sick of most things by the end of a large sweater. However, I love this sweater. I finished it last Wednesday and I have already worn it two days. It's warm, soft, and creamy. The color is amazing. Of course, I bought 11 skeins and used very little of the 10th. So now I have to make something with the rest. I was thinking Pedicure Socks for my first sock attempt.
The pin also looks beautiful on it, I just need to block the sweater so the knit band lays more flat and I can wear the pin more easily.
I am also extremely pleased with the way I grafted the neckband together. The first time I did it, it looked horrible. I frogged it and tried again. This time: perfection!
On another note, I also have started hanging out at my LYS, Blazing Needles, and have been getting a lot of knitting done at their Thursday night knit night. Yesterday they had their Grand Opening and I bought lots of yarn for various projects.
First up: SuiBui Silk Cloud in Ink for the Everyday Wrap.
I can't figure out why Blogger rotated this picture, but I have about 4 inches done.
Also, I bought some Lamb's Pride Bulky to make Prarie Boots.
