Going for Gold.

It may not be Vancouver, but it feels pretty good to me.

The Pattern: Climbing Vines from Interweave Knits

The Needles: US 4’s, 6’s and 7’s

The Yarn: Queensland Collection Kathmandu Aran in #147, Teal, ~950 yards

The Verdict: I loved knitting this sweater and stayed up way too late last night seaming it to see how it was going to fit. I admit that I’m a little unsure of the fit in the upper bust and arms. The neckline is very wide, and I feel like the bust area is a little large even though I knit a size smaller than I normally do. I nailed the body length though, and while I went a little long on the sleeves I love them cuffed too. I promise more glamour shots after I give it a good wearing this week! For now… gold feels good!
