2nd Hourglass

I loved this sweater so much, I'm knitting one for my step-mother. I'm still knitting the body of the sweater so the pictures aren't too exciting yet. I'm knitting this sweater with Blue Sky Alpaca cotton yarn. I love this stuff, it's soft and thick, but not too thick. The yarn color is 606 Shell, which my step-mom loves. I've knit this sweater before (see the Cast Off album) so it's knitting up quickly. I'm skipping the hems on this sweater so the edges will roll up instead of be flat and square.

Another Finished HG

I've been meaning to post this for awhile. I finished up my hourglass sweater several months ago, and got to wear it a couple of times before summer kicked in. I used Noro Cash Iroha #84, and I loved the pattern and the yarn. I will definitely be making this sweater again, but probably with a different yarn.
