The Big SackI couldn't decide which pictures I wanted to show, so you get them all.
Pattern: Lace Leaf Pullover , by Teva Durham
Materials: 5 balls of Rowan Plaid (Color 154, 42% Merino, 30% Acrylic, 28% Alpaca - 109 yds/100g), Sz 13 needles
My gauge: 10 sts = 9.75" (as opposed to 10cm - which shrunk down the sweater to 36")
Knitting Time: Oct 5- Oct 10 2005.
Notes: I didn't bind off the top piece as stated in the pattern, but just left those sts live so I could kitchener stitch the top and bottom half. Made the sleeves about 1.5" longer by accident. Otherwise, no other mods. I have 2 balls left-over, might make a matching hat to go with it, unless you gals suggest otherwise. This sweater is perfect for Fall/Winter, one of those sweaters that I can see myself wearing quite frequently given the warmth and the comfy factor. Oh, and I finished it Teva Style A.K.A No Blocking.
Aside...... Thank you for your encouragements about the long-distance deal. Whenever I'm in a crappy mood, which is pretty often these days, I just read the comments you've left me and feel better. Had no idea so many people are going through/went through long-distance relationships and worked. Thank you all.
