This afternoon, coffee cup and little bowl of chocolates at my side, I finally finished the side/underarm seams on my sweater. The yarn was my Loopy Legends yarn dyed for me according to an inspiration photo – this bird is a Gannet.
I started the sweater August 30, 2015, — it’s a CustomFit pattern called Afterlight. I wanted just a simple pull over that I could toss on with my jeans around the house.
This is the yarn based on that photo:
I didn’t want to bother with alternating hanks of yarn so decided it would be my “pooling” experiment. I got several different types of pooling. The widest swatch of pooling is on the back and if I were choosing placement, right across my backside would not be where I’d put it but it is what it is. 🙂
I need to bury a few ends and block it but here’s what it looks like right now.
I have jeans the same bluey/gray color as in the yarn but I was way to lazy to put those on for the photo. Fingering weight yarn – tho it takes longer of course to knit a sweater in it – is a great weight sweater to wear. The Lorna’s Laces Loopy Legends have a nice bit of drape – which helped create the bit of gathers at the bottom of the vee neck. The vee neck is ribbed and then finished with a little rolled stockinette edging.
I updated my “Knit the Stash” page with this finished project. Over 2,000 more yards of yarn added to the “knit” list. I have converted those yarns knit/woven to date to miles – because I like seeing how many miles it converts to and so far I have FINISHED knitting/weaving nearly 12 and one half miles of yarn.
