NaKniSweMo 2012

I’m sure you weren’t all waiting on pins and needles to see what I chose, but in the interests of updating, I chose the Rivel sweater. I wound up my skeins of Madelinetosh DK in the colorway Shire and away I went:

 

A week of knitting and I have a completed back and a partial front:

The DK base reminds me of her Vintage base and knits pretty similarly.  The pattern is well written and I’m enjoying it quite a bit.  But far and away the best part of this sweater knit is the color. I can’t get over how rich and deep the color of the yarn is. The photos absolutely do not do justice to the green, with hints of yellow and turquoise.  It almost reminds me of copper patina at points and every so often I just have to stop and stare at the beautiful fabric this yarn is creating.

More to come.
