Denim Blue Pullover

 

Finally! 

I finished this sweater that felt like it was on the needles forever. My sister gave me the yarn from someone who gave it to her from someone's stash. As you can see from the three skeins, one skein had less color variation and wasn't it lucky that I started the sweater with the odd skein first? (The universe was smiling upon me!).

I've made this sweater before, and decided to drop down one size because I was a little short on yardage. Also the first sweater was roomy enough to make that decision on the second sweater. I did not run out of yarn and even had several yards left over.

Now all I need is some freezing cold weather to wear it!

What are you working on this week?

  11. I love that sweater. Yes, it was a good thing that you started with the skein that had the least variation. So pretty.

  12. The yarn worked out very well. I love the soft stripe/variegated variation in the yarn. One of these days maybe we can both wear our new blue sweaters.
