Here's my humble attempt at my first pullover, a colorblock made with LionBrand Quick & Thick Wool-Ease (6 skeins, size medium). It's nice and warm/cozy, and you won't need a coat while wearing it over a t-shirt in 40 temps.

It's beautiful! You did a great job!

IMO since it is mostly acrylic I'd be careful about not needing a coat in 40 temps. It's not as warm as pure wool. That might just be me with my socal blood though. :shrug:

Thank you so much, everyone! The pattern called for Fisherman and Charcoal, but I went for a more blue - mainly because they didn't have charcoal available at JoAnn's. Oh well.:roll:

BTW, the pattern's from Better Homes and Gardens Knit Sweaters for Her. That might not be the verbatim name of the book, but it's very close to that.

I'm currently on a light-blue diamond lacy-type sweater/pullover.

LOL, Jan! :-) Yea, I usually bring along a jacket, just in case.

Thanks, Wanda! I'm thinking of doing an orange and black for Halloween, that'd be really cool! And perhaps I could even do some embroidering of ghosts or something.:blooby:
