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?
