FO: Eadon finally finished...
 
Pattern: Eadon
Yarn: Austermann Bambou Soft
My Ravelry project notes, almost a blog....beware! :teehee:

Finally finished! Oy vey! Seaming is very strange for the armholes and shoulders (with that saddle shoulder and right angle turns at the armhole). Ugh. That's why I procrastinated the seaming. And it's futzy. I'm good with the appearance overall. Had to lightly block the armhole seams to make them shape up.

I'll definitely use this DELICIOUS cable configuration again...but I will never EVER knit this pattern again. Seaming was ridiculous, and especially aggravating to a perfectionist. Aggravating, I tell you...aggravating.

Couldn't resist reading your Ravelry notes! I hope your odyssey doesn't prevent the pleasure of wearing. Beautiful sweater, beautiful color!

Beautiful sweater in a lovely color. The cable pattern is very attractive. If you found the pattern difficult I would never try it!

Another stunner, that's for sure! Spectacularly executed knitting and in a gorgeous color! You know what they say, though: No pain, no gain!! And yet, just creating a work of art (as you always do) even without the seaming headaches you had on this one is certainly enough "pain," yes?

Sorry to hear it was so problematic! Now you can wear it to pieces and get your trouble's worth out of it (or conversely, frame the gorgeous thing as a monument to your patience and perfectionism)!! Oh wait . . . I recall now that you don't have any wall space--better just stick with wearing it! ;)

It's gorgeous!!! :inlove:

It is just gorgeous and I love that color. Don't you just hate it when the pattern is gorgeous, but the instructions are nuts? That's what that monkey hat was like. You did another beautiful job.

The armhole seams are dry today. I held my breath and tried it on....WOW, it fits perfectly, even the sleeves! They aren't too long, too snug or baggy! All of my futzy modifications worked out! As soon as I wash my hair I'll take some photos!

Right now I'm up to my ears in finishing a Japanese Feather Shawl...the 6th and final ball of yarn! I'm determined to finish....

Modeling the sweater, can you believe it???
 
Nice weather today. New haircut. Time to drag out the camera and tripod. DH doesn't have the patience to take 25 photos in order for me to like one of them. :teehee:

So here is old Artlady, modeling her new Eadon sweater. The yarn has a bit of stretchiness to it, therefore it's really comfie!

And yes, I'm waving at YOU. :thumbsup:


Boy, I'm feeling my age these days...looks like it too, doesn't it? Ah well,
I'm a great-gramma. What did I expect anyway? :teehee:

That is a gorgeous creation! :muah: Tom is sitting here making comments too. He likes the cable and the whole thing. And also said it was a work of art, and keeps saying "simple elegance". The only thing I miss is seeing what beautiful buttons you chose. :lol: Looks great on you.

Oh you look fabulous! :hug:
