Effiel sweater by knitty .
I have been working on this for about the past month .

Not that the pattern is boring , I have too many OTN projects .

Determined to get this done in time for cool spring days .

Anyone else working on this or want to with me ?

I am using this yarn I bought off of ebay .

It's Hempathy / designer's choice yarn .

Seems to be working up fairly nice so far .

Here is a link to the pattern http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter06/PATTeiffel.html

Oooooh, you're a bad influence. I like you!

I have been thinking of doing Tubey too. I live in the desert! Why do I keep knitting myself sweaters???

Heh, it can get cold in them So Cal deserts, Carmen. You could use cotton or linen instead of wool, though.

Carmen - I think I might do Tubey too
Only I would make it a solid color , I don't look good in stripes .

It can get cold in the desert at night or so I have been told .

I live in PA and haven't worn any sweaters till a few weeks back .
Wasn't cold enough .
This weather has been a strange one so far .

Worked on the Effiel sweater most of the day yesterday , not much farther along , who knew how long 11 inches could be . lol
Once I get the chance , I'll post pictures of how far I am .
Hopefully later on today .

Looks great so far, Guin!!
I've been drooling over Eiffel for a while now, but I think I want to work on a few sweaters for the kids first - to learn what I'm doing.

By the way, where in Delco are you from? I grew up in Boothwyn (graduated from Chi), my parents still live there.

That looks hard! Nice work. I love that sweater, it's so elegant yet sexy. Is Hempethy ? Hempathy hemp yarn? It looks lace weight in your picture.
