Wearing it to the office this morning. I deliberately didn’t make it a very long or roomy tunic. I am tired of giant sweaters. This goes just to mid hip.

I think the yarn is softer and the fabric more open than intended by the designer but I like it anyway. The Lenox is not really an aran weight and on size 9 needles the fabric is somewhat more open. However its perfect for the office which is where I spend most of my time. First sweater for 2012 done!

Done! 1/10 at 1:30 am. ;-) I haven’t done the button loops because the crochet hook is in the room where my husband is sleeping. I’ll do those tomorrow…um..later today. Better picture in daylight to follow as well.

01/08/2012 Sleeves done, collar started.

01/05/2012 - front done, sleeves started. Knitting sleeves side by side together on a circular (not in the round) because they are symmetrical and I love having two sleeves done at the same time and being exactly the same length.

12/26/2011 - back done
