|Yarn: Rowan Pure Wool Worsted in Color 106, "Rust"|
|I like to call this one "Jesus".|
|Just threw this one in because I like it.|
|I like this one too, so I'm forcing you to look at it.|
The sweater is done, and I am so happy with it. The color begged for it to be paired with gold jewelry, so I had to find the necklace in the picture. I hardly ever wear this necklace. It looks good with this sweater, so I'll wear it more now.
You know, I originally planned for this to be a turtleneck. The turtleneck was supposed to be knit so that when you turned the neck down, you saw the mock cable pattern that borders the sleeve and hem. However, I changed it to a scoop neck because I wanted to be able to wear it in the spring. I was afraid that if I didn't, I'd pass out from "hot neck-itis" (I have this habit of turning anything into a disease/medical condition by adding "-itis" to the end.).
I'm in love with those sleeves, honey. I wanted them to be much wider, but when I thought about the fact that too much fabric might get in the way, I toned it down a bit. This yarn feels good next to my skin, which is great since I really didn't want to have to wear a tank or t-shirt underneath.
It feels great to have this one done. I truly thank Linda Pratt of Westminster Fibers for the yarn gift.
Now, on to the next design.
