Ok, so let me just say that I finished this Sunday evening and I love it, so keeping it from you all for almost an entire week has been so freakin’ hard.
You know that thing? That thing I’ve been showing you bits and pieces of since….oh….November?
what *is* that?
Yea, that thing.
Oh that's what it is!
Its done! And its been released in to the world (or at least into my wardrobe) and I love love LOVE it. I’ve worn it to class already and have a hard time taking it off, I can’t wait till it warms up just a leetle bit and I can wear it with some cute tshirts or camis underneath!
easy texture, easy shape
I do plan on writing this pattern up and released for sale through my Etsy shop and Ravelry. I will also need test knitters for it *wink wink* so keep that in mind!
Adds just enough warmth
It was knit top down, raglan sleeves, almost seamless except for that front panel that adds so much to the piece. Its knit up kind of like a short scarf then sewn onto the sweater. I’m thinking of adding a couple of different sleeve lengths, whaddya think?

Remember wwwaaayyy back in November and I shared this post?
From Humble Beginnings
I’m still working on that there project, its slow going, but that’s fine with me because I want it to turn out right. Its nice to have something to fall back on between Christmas gifts and custom orders, and this yarn is so luxurious and wonderful that its always a treat to work on the project.
Here’s what the beast is growing into:
I was a tad worried about running out of yarn and so I decided to go ahead and get some more. I ended up deciding to purchase two more balls of the Plymouth Suri Merino rather than just one, and so I will count it as 1 of my 5 Yarn Diet purchases for the next 5 months.
Oh, and speaking of the Yarn Diet, did you see over there ———->
In my side bar I’ve put a little counter so I can show you what I started with and what I currently have. And yes, the number did jump from 250 to 260 because I found another bag of yarn that I had forgotten to count….don’t judge. Its a problem.
I’ve overcome the first step, admitting it.
