the sock stripes are pretty crooked.

many thanks to everyone who answered any of my many many questions knitting the sweater! :cheering:

thanks!!

the sweater is arisaig (http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall05/PATTarisaig.html). sadly, I tried to wash the hard water out of it - with refrigerated bottled water - and it shrank! and I could swear it wasn't this scratchy before, either.
so now I can't even wear it until I figure out a way to restretch it evenly.

but I can say - you're right, it's just something in the water. :roll:

the restarted socks are in my blog, but I'm angry with them, so they won't be joining us here.

I am soooo sorry it shrunk because it is so very beautiful. I couldn't see the sock pics for some reason, but I am sure they are gorgeous too. I got a peek at them at your blog.
