Numero Ocho

It’s October 13 and I’m starting to sweat a little bit. See I started this 11 sweaters in 2011 as a challenge to myself, but as usual I got distracted by other projects (squirrel!) and now it’s mid-October and I have 3 more sweaters to knit.  But I’m persevering, though I foresee a great end of December knit-a-thon in the cards.

I finished this one on Saturday, and I LOVE it.

The Pattern: Idlewood

The Needles: US 10.5, US 8

The Yarn: Lamb’s Pride Superwash Worsted, Midnight Pine

The Verdict: This is a great sweater. A cozy cowl neck, a great layering piece, and looks good on a variety of body types. I know this one will get a lot of wear. Apologies on the color distortion here – the sweater is a pine green heathered with red and gold flecks, rather than the grey-green it appears here. I’ll try for a closeup soon!
