Notes

I LOVE THIS! I modified it to an xs but did not save my notes.

I loved doing the free form daisy embroidery. It is only done on the fronts. I happened to have the exact colors of KSH Eclipse that the pattern required in my stash, however, if you don’t you could substitute with another fine gauge yarn or even use embroidery floss. You just need scraps. I think the Anchor Metallic is worth purchasing the real thing and would not substitute that. It has just the right amount of sparkle and was easy enough to use for the embroidery. Overall a great sweater. It gets noticed when I wear it.

The Angora Haze is scrumptious. It’s warm and furry. OK, so angora is notorious for shedding, and this does shed a teensy bit, but it is minimal. It’s angora for goodness sake, so I can forgive it’s peculiarities. This is a luxury yarn that knits into a luxury fabric that is like no other and it’s worth every little shed! My third sweater with this fabulous yarn and I’ve stashed away enough for one more.
