Yay! I'm finished!
I finished my sweater! Yippee!!
Here's a photo (the weather was nice so we had to take photos at the beach)
This was a slightly traumatic sweater. I didn't post during my progress because I was frustrated with it. This was my first circular sweater and althought I loved knitting with the Cash Iroha, I didn't like the fact that knitting circular was cumbersome. Also, I ran out of yarn. I made the smallest size and I needed 9 1/2 skeins instead of the 8 called for in the pattern. I ordered 9, and luckily they had the same dye lot available for the final skein.
I knitted the body with Addi Turbo 7's, but I had to knit fairly tight to keep gauge. The sleeves I knitted with the Clover plastic 6 needles, so I knitted a bit loosely. I did like the way the hemming looked at the end. I think the sweater looks finished with it. Probably my favorite thing about this sweater is the color! Very pretty.
I had a hard time gauging how the sweater would look like in the end. Too big? Too short? Neckline too big? But, in the end, it came out very nice. I really like it.
I'll post a couple of more photos on my blog, so check it out!
Thank you Kelly for hosting the knitalong! To be honest, I'm not sure if I would have finished without it.
