Irish Coffee is finished!
This sweater is awesome. I love it.
It's been a rather long and stressful week, and I'm kinda tapped of creative writing skills, so we'll mostly stick to the photos here.
Also, I'm having a terrible hair day and blotchy skin day, hence the headless shots! (But at least the kids are cute.)
Pattern: Irish Coffee by Thea Colman
Yarn: Peace Fleece heathers, just under 4 skeins (100g, 200yds per skein)
Sticks: size 8 circs and DPNs
Mods: I didn't do all the sleeve decreases because the sleeves seemed tight for some reason. Probably my kickin' biceps. Otherwise, I executed the pattern as written and it turned out looking just as nice as I'd hoped. I have to say that Thea's instructions are excellent for fit and modifications to best compliment one's figure. I don't have curves to accommodate, but I feel confident as I knit her designs that they will end up as successful, flattering garments. This is the second of her patterns I've knit (the first was the Gibson Shell, but I've got several others in the queue.)
