I finished my first sweater!!
Ok, it's the fourth one I've started but it is the first one that i have finished (so far).

It is KP Shine worsted in Terra Cotta and it is very snuggly soft. The pattern is from Knitting Pure and Simple.

Hey, I have read that you can not only machine wash but also tumble dry garments made of KP Shine. Is that really true? I mean, have any of you done it? I am afraid to be the first one. Maybe I'll just lay it flat to dry...
