FO: Sweater for myself
I've only made one sweater for myself (that I actually kept) before this and got rid of it years ago. This is based on Drops pattern 127-13 like the bright green one I made a while back for my youngest daughter. I liked the pattern and thought I'd like one. This yarn was the wrong gauge so I knit the smallest size and hoped for the best. I also made a lot of changes including going with 2 colors and intarsia leaves this time and adding bobbles (pattern had some but not exactly the same). Yarn is Queensland Kathmandu DK (merino, silk, cashmere blend).

That's so pretty Judy! Glad knitting the smaller size worked out for you!

Love it! Your adventurousness paid off big time! That's beautiful and very nicely done. I'm really glad you made something so lovely for yourself. You really need to keep it.

Beautiful colors and it sounds like luscious yarn. The fit is perfect so the decisions on size worked out very well. Definitely a keeper. Enjoy this one yourself, Judy!
