Notes

My hubby bought this yarn for me as a gift because I specifically requested it.

I cast on this sweater after I left my sock project at a friend’s house. I’m twitching because I’m a monogamous knitter! But, I love this yarn. The pattern is easy but I’m finding that the stitches are a little more open. I sort of wish I had gone down a needle size.

I love this yarn and I love how squishy it is. I do have to say, however, that the picture that is shown on the website is not at all flattering. This sweater is very bulky but is very pretty and soft and very dense and squishy.

Holy cow! I found out that this pattern S-T-R-E-T-C-H-E-S after I had to wash a small section of it. I think it will be taking a short ride in the dryer when it is pieced together.

Speaking of which…I haven’t pieced it together yet. I don’t know why. I’m not a fan of finishing. But that is all that stands between me and a beautiful, warm, thick sweater.
