Notes

This is not only the February Lady Sweater, but the gorgeous February 2010 Yarn Share from Romney Ridge. It is knitting up so beautifully in garter stitch for the yoke. It’s variegated, so the colors go from pink to what I would call raspberry. Nice to have some color in this gray, rainy March weather! It really makes me feel better to look at it.

I have been knitting at least a couple of rows a day, and last night I got to the point where the sleeves separate from the body. I like the way this yarn knits up in the lace pattern. It’s so much lighter than the garter stitch. I think it will provide a nice contrast. Also, the garter stitch yoke should provide a strong foundation.

Set this aside over the summer. It was too hot. I picked it up again in Oct./Nov. but it was slow going. Finally finished yesterday, except for sewing on the buttons.
