Quince & Co. Sparrow
5.2 skeins = 873.6 yards (798.8 meters), 260 grams

I finished this sweater early in October 2012. It was an interesting and unique pattern. I like the Quince Sparrow yarn very much.

09-28-12 I had some problems trying to join the top edges with three needle bind-off. I am seaming them instead.

09-12-12 “Piggyback” blocking. Read more on my blog.

08-05-12 I am really enjoying knitting with linen this summer! My newest photo shows that I am about 55% finished. This is an easy lace pattern. As with all lace, it will look so much better after blocking (see the swatch photo).

06-12-12 Added photo of work in progress. About 25% finished.

05-08-12 Swatched with US size 3 and 4 needles, and will use the 4’s. I love this yarn! It is very soft for linen.

Just a week after I bought my yarn, Quince began offering a small range of dyed colors. I love the natural, but I may have to use one of the dyed shades in the future :-)
