i'm working on this sweater from drops designs:


here's my progress so far. This has been a real chalenge for me to try to figure out the pattern because it is written in a very confusing way!

anyways i hope you enjoy!

thank you guys for your kind words. I guess i should mention that I used the Safran yarn like the pattern calls for on size 4 needles in color black.

Beautiful knitting! I love the Drops designs, but, yes - they are a bear to figure out! I can't wait to see the FO!

It's coming out great! I am still trying to encourage myself to do some lace...

thank you guys for your compliments. it is actually going along quickly, i only have about an hour or so in the evening to knit which is why it takes me a while. as for knitting lace, i think it is SO easy. i just place a marker in between the repeats for the pattern to make sure i dont forget where i'm at and its all good.

I loooooove :heart:that sweater....I really want to make it but I'm scared, I'm not sure I'd be able to. You're doing a great job so far, it looks awesome!:cheering:

That sweater is just stunning! :inlove: You are making good progress - I can't wait to see it completed!

The whole thing on US 4s? :thud:

yes, the whole thing is on US 4s I KNOW its a pain, but hey what are you gonna do lol.
and Katie, if you are interested, after i'm done, i'll send you all my notes and charts written out. i just want to finish it first to make sure i wrote them out correctly. the way the pattern is written looks VERY intimidating but its actually not that hard!

ok i finished the front piece last night and cast on for the back piece. this sweater is actually going along much faster then i thought it would considering the fact that it is on US 4s. i'll post pics soon.
