Stick A Fork In It-It's Done!
My handspun yarn from Crown Mountain Farms-100% merino. I used 1197 yards of handspun on size 5 needles for the body-size 3 for ribbing. It is Anne Hanson's pattern-Aztec Mazes. I started in April and finished November 26. I am calling it at 71/2 months.
Things I really liked about this sweater-
1- The softness of the merino yarn.
2- The neckline is perfect on me.
3- The armhole technique was unique.
The pattern was challenging, but very, very well written. I will sing the praises of this designer. She obviously knows how to make things as if she were designing for clothing. I know she has a background in fashion design and it shows.
I am quite proud of myself, and this year's sweater is done.
