I finished it!
It’s not perfect but considering how badly written the pattern was, I am very happy with it. The yarn is actually pretty nice and feels warm and woolly and I think I finally have the fit of the lower body right for what I like my sweaters to be (my last two sweaters weren’t quite fitted enough through the hips for my taste). I think this will be a good just hanging around sort of sweater.
I am starting to plan out my next sweater for the year now and I picked out the yarn and buttons for it the other day when I went to my lys.
The yarn is the Mineville Wool Project in #2701 Angora Wool and the colourway is Mr. Bun, and the buttons which are hard to see are little metal buttons with 4 holes each. The yarn is very soft and knits up nice and I think that the subtle colour variation will be really nice for a sweater, I also really like that this is a Canadian yarn. The sweater that I think I am going to make with this is Sophie by Jennifer Wood, I think its a really cute sweater that would go great with a dress or jeans and I’ve been wanting to make it for a while. I’m going to get this balled up and start swatching soon so I can get going on the sweater, I feel like I’m in a real sweater knitting mood right now so I might as well take advantage of it.
