On Christmas Eve, I was feeling a little jolly and more than a little selfish, so, I cast on a sweater for me.
By New Year's, I had the body of a sweater soaked, blocked, and seamed!
Yarn: Classic Elite Waterlily in Lily Pad
Classic Elite's Waterlily yarn is a delight!
The colors are gorgeous with a hand-dyed semi-solid effect.
Left to right: Blueberry 1924, Azalea 1925, Lily Pad 1972 (green on top), Wedgewood 1957, and Bramble 1927.
It knits up to a true Aran weight, which means almost immediate gratification.
Unfortunately, this sweater has remained unfinished since then. All she requires are a pair of sleeves and neck edging.
She even fits!
Because I have kind of made up a simple pullover design, my plan was to pick up stitches on the armholes and create after-thought sleeves with short-row shaping for the sleeve caps. I have done it before, and it is easy, I have just not been in the mood for sleeves. Even though, it is cold outside, and I would really, really enjoy wearing a new sweater...
Startitis has consumed me.
