Sweater #2 of 12 for 2012. Am hoping I have enough yarn to make this size - using leftover stash yarn.
My scale is broken so I estimated the yardage used. This knit up so quickly. I’m nearly done seaming; just have to add the sleeves.
This was my first time using Shine on a garment. I’ve made many many toys with it and loved the result. It needs such little blocking, which I love, and the colors are so vibrant. However, I don’t like how the ends look woven in. On the right side you cannot see them (hurrah!), but because of the way the sweater is designed, when laying flat, you can see some of the ends at the collar. Of course, this should not be a problem when he wears the sweater, but until then…it looks a little sloppy. And if there is one thing I do NOT like it is sloppy knitting.
(took about 4 days of non-constant knitting to make and seam)
