Pieces blocked, waiting to be seamed.
4/21/10 Finally returning to this project. I think if I do a little everyday I might have a shot at finishing it in April. Maybe. I have to:
5/5/10 Although this needs another blocking and some buttons I am calling this done because I can move on to another project that involves knitting.
I loved this pattern and yarn.
The lace is really cool looking and the pattern was easy to remember after a spell. I can’t remember the last time I set in sleeves (have I ever? oh yes, the Jasper Hoodie was set in, but it is a kiddo sweater) and these worked beautifully. I think a second blocking will open up the lace and the ribbing to even out proportions. I imagine this will be a very comfy sweater for fall and foggy SF summer days.
The yarn is gorgeous and despite the weight difference performed well on size 8 needles. I used 4.7 skeins (~1058 yards) but calling it 5 for stash down purposes.
