The color reminds me of city snow; not so bright and white , but a little muddied.

I was actually swatching for the cotton sweaters for my sister and me, but got sidetracked.
Just needed something soft to knit with. The yarn feels so nice and the pattern is perfect. Easy to follow.
What worries me a little with the size is that it is a little over three inches of positive ease and I hope the sweater will not hang on me. I do want it oversized and cozy….but not too big, just right, the Goldilock‘s way.

10.10. One day in and I divided the sleeves and body. I tried it on and it’s a good fit!!! Yeah!!!

10.16. Just the sleeves left to do which I will knit up two at a time. I finished the 10 inch collar already; used size #9 needles after three inches to keep it more loose.

10.19. Finished today. I love this sweater and I will miss handling the yarn. Perhaps I should do a few more projects with soft yarns before getting started on my sister’s cotton sweater.
