Finally, I have finished the knitting of this hand spun sweater. It turned out wonderful. I am kind of getting tired of being disappointed in my finished objects, especially in the sweaters. This pattern knit beautifully, and it fits great! I can not wait for weather where I can actually wear it. That will not be for a while now. The pattern is the Miracle Neck Down Lace Pullover from CEY Alpaca Stories.
Now, I am working on the homespun sweater vest for my son. This is the one who NEVER wears the things I knit for him. However, he picked the fiber this time. And every time he sees the work in progress he comments on how much he likes the color. I am keeping my fingers crossed on that one. I will say however, the Corridale I spun for it was an absolute dream to work with and I am in love with the yarn. It feels nice and soft and squishy to work with.
Also on tap, I am working on submitting a set of mittens for the Verbivore Smitten Mitten Contest. I have a couple of prototypes in the works. I am very excited to see how they all knit up.
