I wish I had finished it sooner, because it's getting too warm to wear (it's Cascade 220, wool). But I really love the way it turned out. (It was in the fall edition of Vogue Knitting.)

It's a work of art! Nice color for you! And Cascade 220 is one of the best yarns around! Wasn't it wonderful to work with?

MoniDew - NO, I'm not anxious for next winter... :)

ArtLady - yes, that was wonderful yarn to work with. I have to be honest, most of what I do is charity knitting, and I use "cheap" yarn from Michael's, etc. but I figured this time, I'd go for the good stuff. It was SO worth it for the time I spent on this one!!!

Thanks, all, for the nice comments!

Just stunning! I'm sure there will be a day or evening left where it will be cool enough to wear! It was 75 here on Friday, and it's snowing again today, sigh!

OMG - it's AWESOME!! :yay: How long did it take you to do and how often did you work on it? I find myself getting burned out on the sweater I'm working on right now. I need some inspiration!!
