That's very nice and one of my favorite colors! :notworthy:

Wow, that looks great! IMHO, it looks better on you than it does on the model. And I love the way the color came out! Done in Nature Wool is a good choice, as it looks wonderful and the yarn that pattern calls for is out of this world pricewise. Great job. :cheering:

You and your sweater are beautiful!

I wasn't really awake for the pictures this morning, but since I finished before work- I had to post the picture. Any ideas on what to do with the 2ish hanks left of nature wool? I love how the color came out!! I had to tweak the pattern- the lacework was coming out too high, so I undid the lacework and added about 15 rows to get it to fit right on me. Other than that, I followed the pattern! For those who asked- it's this pattern: http://www.stitchdiva.com/ProductInfo.aspx?productid=SDS-026

It was my first try at a fitted pattern, and other than having to frog back to the neckline to get it to fit right, it wasn't half bad. Took me about a month to make, and since it just snapped cold out here in VA, it was absolutely wonderful to wear to work today! I'm definately happy with the finished product!

Sooooo beautiful, you and the sweater both. I've got the pattern and the yarn, I just have to find the courage!

You've inspired me! :muah:

:inlove: Absolutely gorgeous and it's on my To Knit list...

Did you string beads or no? I can't tell?

10-26-2006, 12:19 PM
Didn't add beads, but I'm thinking of adding some into the neckline. I like it without it... I'm not a big sparkly person...
