Rawr. Ferocious. Sums up the way I've gone at my March sweater. I've been so constantly working on it, I had to bargain with myself to put it down long enough to post.
Several months ago, my friend and fellow knitter Kelly and I drove out to West Chicago for the Dream in Color Seconds Sale, where we snagged up some amazing deals (we're talking 75% off!!!) on Baby and Smooshy.
I hauled away with four sweaters worth. It was glorious! The only catch, if you can even consider it that, none of the skeins were tagged. So, we really have no idea which colorways we're working with ~Minor detail.
I've really been looking forward to knitting up something wonderful. But, I've had more difficulty finding lace-weight sweater patterns (that I like and can see myself wearing) than I thought I would. After much consideration, I landed on Olive. In particular, I'm a huge fan of lsingal's and AngelR's FOs, which are a bit less blousy (sack like) through the mid-section. AngelR was generous enough to include all her modification notes in her project summary; what a gem!
Since Dream In Color is so dimensional, I decided to contrast with a solid yarn through the yoke, but more on that later.
I'm following AngelR's sizing modifications; however, I'm knitting in the round. I'll take purling over seaming any day. Have you started your March projects yet?
