Sweater for me!!!

yay! A finished Object! (Sorry for the lack of modeled shots.  I was trying to do them myself, but it was just not working out.  I even had Jess try, but well, sometimes it’s just not a good idea to have the cute blind chick taking the pictures.)

My seamless yoke sweater; inspiration here.


Pattern:
seamless yoke sweater Elizabeth Zimmerman’s Knitting without tears, with some referencing to Ann Budd’s Handy book of sweater patterns.  (A word of caution, Ann Budd patterns have some pretty full sleeves.)
Yarn: cascade 220 heathers in color:4007.  trim: mystery mercandized cotton form the stash.

Next time, I think I’m going to stick with my standard hemmed edges.  They don’t roll.  I had to steam block the hem of this sweater to keep it down.

I made another calorimetry for another of Nate’s co workers from the leftover odd balls.

I think i have enough left to make a pair of sweet mary janes as well.

Now, what to do with the 4 untouched skeins I have left.

    How nice! I for one, love a generous sleeve, don’t like feel like a prisoner in my duds. I’m kind of partial to bell sleeves too. Love the colors you chose on this, really nice knitting.

    Is it enough for a matching Jess sweater?

    Wow! Great colors! It looks so yummy! I’m partial to fuller sleeves, better for layering and not being choked.
    Can you add a bit more to the crocheted edge? maybe a little corhcet picot? that might hold it down better….
