Fresh off the needles!

Woo-freeking-Hoo!

Desperately needs blocking, weaving in ends, buttons, etc. - but, I. Love. This. Sweater! Thanks Bonne Marie for such a wonderful pattern. I knit the smallest size and used 8 skeins of Jo Sharp Silkroad Tweed in Beech. I have two other colors of JSST in the stash and am thinking of a second with 3/4 sleeves in Dusk. Did I tell you yet that I love this sweater? Off to weave in ends and give this girl a bath.

Thanks everyone. I wore it today - no buttons yet, couldn't wait! Simply used a pin to close and off we went. I've already cast on for my second!

OMG! I've been waiting to see this - the yarn is something I've been wanting to try.

It is FABULOUS - I curtsey (low) to you m'lady for your wonderful work (and many thanks for your kind kind compliments!)
