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?

So, as I said last week, I went to a wedding in Virginia this weekend! It was my goal to finish the NY Sweater before we left so that I could wear it to said wedding and I accomplished my goal So here are some better pictures of it, on a model not flat and blocking on a table.
Getting Dressed for the Event
The Back View
What do you all think? I told you it was pretty long on a shorter person but everyone loves it and most of my cardigans are short so its nice to have variety in my closet.
Love the Sleeve Detail
Of course I had to take a small knitting project with me and I just knew that the yarn I got from Paris at La Drougerie (talked about here, check it out, it is *so* cool) would be the perfect triangle scarf.
I love this yarn sooo much! I wish I had gotten more of it
I’m blocking it now and will have completed project pictures and details tomorrow
