Oooh, y’all! This sweater is going to be amazing!
I flew through the yoke (that lace panel was fun!), and I’m cruising through the body (I’m still not sure if I want it to be cropped or not… but I’ve got a couple inches before I have to decide).
I’ve gotta say, the neckline looks wild (it looks wide enough to be a waistband!). But, I’m trusting the pattern. It has you pick up the provisional cast-on and work the neckline ribbing with much smaller needles, which should make the sweater look more like a sweater and less like a caftan. Fingers crossed that it turns out the way I’m hoping it will.
But I kinda don’t care how the finished sweater looks, because I just can’t get over how fuzzy and soft and glow-y this fabric is. I wish you could reach through the computer and pet this yarn. The combo of the heavy/drapey fingering weight bamboo and the fluffy silk/merino is just a delight. Honestly, the reason that I haven’t already finished this sweater is that I keep pausing my knitting to pet it. It’s really becoming a problem.
What is the project that you’re most excited about right now?
It’s SO PRETTY!!! That fabric just glows. I’m making a Soldotna Crop for a friend in Kelbourne Woolens Andorra, which I’m thrilled about.
Gorgeous! I actually just bought some yarn to make this sweater this weekend, and once it arrives from England I’m excited to dive in!
It looks gorgeous. I’m most enjoying my first ever pair of socks, although I’m still on the ribbing so it feels like slow going.
