I should say the first of the 2 year sweaters! What can I say, it's hard to stick with a long project for me. I'll either finish it or frog it.
Started in July of 2010....
More progress made 1 year later after the move....
In December, had this much left to do....
It is pretty soft for a cotton yarn. It has a lot of plies, so that part isn't fun.
A bit hot to wear it right now, even though it is cotton.
Button detail. I actually made 4 buttonholes, but only decided to use 2 right now.
Fits good on the shoulders too. Not sure the open front is the most flattering, but oh well.
Liesl by Ysolda
Araucania Pomaire-multy, 3 skeins
US 10 & 10.5 needles
No known mods. However, lining up the pattern on the sleeves is challenging to say the least. Most people I researched had trouble with the left sleeve. Of course, I didn't, it was the right sleeve that about did me in! Many restarts later I decided just to read the knitting and not the pattern and viola it was done.
Not in time for my son's graduation, but done nonetheless.
Of course I just frogged one sweater wip, and started a new one....but stay tuned, I plan on finishing another 2 yr sweater next month :D
