Well to the dyer's at Blue Moon Fiber Arts it means "Raspberries in pond scum drowned in black. Loud and just a wee bit obnoxious. Attention is what he craves and he will get it. From the primordial ooze, he has risen to wreak a bit of havoc. Trickster? Definitely!"
Does it define me in any way....maybe a wee bit. I like to play tricks, who doesn't like attention, and I've been known to be loud too. This yarn, however, kinda had me at Raspberries though. But geesh, had I known taking pictures of it would be such a PIA...I mighta changed my mind...
This is the 3rd and final photo shoot! It's too stinkin' hot around here and my personal photographer...well if she has to do this one more time, I think she'll throw my cameras away! Go to the link above, see the color, enjoy the color, come back and see it here ;) Maybe one day I can get better pics, but for now...here ya go!
the hmmmm look...
See, she's trying to smile look...

and the back...quick, scroll down, don't stay here..
the picture bites!
Buttons close up!
RosiG generously gifted me with these. I had commented on liking them when she knit her CPH 1 year ago, and I think they are perfect for the sweater.
Ok, now that you all are recovered from my horrid pictures...I guess a trip to see Cristi is needed. Maybe I can

Mods: The only real mods I made were to not knit the YO increases in the bodice section. I certainly do not need any extra attention there! I did knit the sleeves longer and tried to match the garter edging on them with the width of my button band area.
Fit: Meh... I didn't block it too severely. It did grow about 2" and most likely would grow more if it was immersion wet blocked and not steamed. I like the length so far. What I don't like as much is the bodice part, on me I mean. Maybe it's the shirt, who knows. I will wear it and try to love it more, I promise!
Musings: It took you a year to knit it??? (It is less than sportweight gauge yarn you know!!) I stopped working on this when I was awaiting what type of BC surgery I was going to have. Then I didn't feel like knitting on it for a bit. Then when I got the mojo back to do so, I had to frog the bodice 2 times...The lace pattern, once I got going on it, it went pretty good (shhh we won't talk about that 4 row tinking incident (yeah, 4 rows of over 200 sts!) that was rescued by one of my fellow knitnite pals. She...took...it...all...off...the...needles, we are talking lace and YO's!) She saved my bacon, I'd still be tinking! I was knitting on sleeve 1 when this happened.
Well travelled: yes, this baby has been to Georgia, Wisconsin, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts (extended stay), New Hampshire, and Maine.
Onward...yes, I've not given up on sweaters yet....
