Notes

Ordered 9 skeins of Valley Yarns Northfield from WEBS in September 2014. Ended up using a few yards of the 9th skein to finish the sweater.

Next time do not slip the last knit stitch on the ribbing before the stockinette section -- it makes the ribbing curl up.

I used Ysolda’s wrapless short-row technique, which is virtually invisible.

The sweater is figure-hugging, but since I’m losing weight …

ETA: I LOVE this sweater. Once I blocked it, it relaxed and now fits me beautifully. Beware, the fabric does grow so I’m glad I knit this in a smaller size. I may even knit it a size smaller next time. Waiting for a WEBS sale to order more Northfield -- it’s great yarn!!
