The project: Shalom
The yarn: Noro Silk Garden for the yoke, and Cascade Ecological Wool for the body.
Made for: Myself =D
Mods: So far, adding 2 more button holes, twisted rib at the bottom of the sweater rather than garter stitch, and long sleeves with twisted rib at the cuffs. Oh yeah and I skipped the waist shaping, mainly because I'm lazy and I didn't want to count. =]
If you remember last week's post then it's probably evident how much I enjoy working on this sweater. I've been doing a lot of riding in the car lately and it's been my companion. I'm also always working on it in the evenings and sometimes getting a few rows in during the day.
This is how much eco I have left to finish my sleeve. =[ I really want full-length sleeves so I guess my options are, 1) add some noro to the sleeves (I used barely any of my second skein of noro) or 2) buy another (ginormous!) skein of eco. ::le sigh:: I was really hoping to bring this sweater (to wear!) this weekend up North. Choices, choices...
Oh, and I'm pretty much decided on the purple buttons, but I thought I'd throw in a couple other options in case people had input. ;]
Ps, last night we had a 1.5 hour ride home from a family event and I wore my sweater in the car, needles and all. It was cozy. =]
