FO: Summer Solstice
I love this sweater, though I had my doubts about the yarn. Lots of vegetable matter that had to be picked out and there were quite a few knots which resulted in a lot of loose ends to weave in. Still, I love the result. What a great pattern. It is seamless with a unique construction.

This little sweater has beautiful drape and is the perfect weight for spring. No mods. It grew about 1.5 inches in length after blocking.

Pattern: Summer Solstice
Yarn: Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool in color #87 Neptune Blue
