finished, part two



I can hardly believe it, but I finished a sweater! A real, adult sized sweater that I can actually wear. This is when knitting is totally cool, and I think Ragdoll would agree. The pattern is my favourite style - raglan sleeves with rolled edges. Already I have more Cascade in the wings (the fuschia/pink blend...why not be more daring?) to make the exact sweater once more. Before that though, I think my little girl should get a sweater of her own, and after this huge endeavour a toddler sized version should take no time!
The details are: Fleece Artist Kidsilk Raglan Pattern, Cascade 220 Heathered (instead of the Kidsilk) on 5mm circular bamboo needles. Only modification was to make the neck longer and narrower so that it was more of a turtleneck style.
