At long last! The lightweight pullover!
This was supposed to be a quick knit, but like many of my projects, it got set aside for other things, so after going gangbusters on it for a few weeks, the last 15% or so dragged out for a while. After not touching the sweater for several weeks, last night I cast off the sleeve, hid the ends, and gave it a soak, which took all of, oh, twenty minutes.
I put it on for a few minutes this morning so Daniel could take a couple of pictures. He did a pretty good job, don't you think? For a five-year-old, I mean. Once we got the pictures, I went right inside to change to a t-shirt. It got up to almost 90 degrees today, and the rest of the week is supposed to be pretty warm! Looks like I won't want to wear this sweater for a while. Too bad, because it fits very nicely, and I do like the color, a dark heathery teal you don't see too often.
Pattern: Lightweight Pullover by the fabulous Hannah Fettig of Knitbot.com
Yarn: Dzined sportweight, a wool/hemp/mohair blend that is among the first yarn I ever stashed. Each skein is about 400 yards, and I had less than 1/3 of a skein leftover.
Mods: I made the body longer, something I've been doing lately on sweaters for myself. Do I have a long torso or something? Or are designer making things shorter? In any case, it wasn't a difficult adjustment to make.
