Yea! I was not in my grove on this one, so I had to re-knit the fronts (several times). But I am happy with how it turned out. You wouldn't know it on my blog because I got so frustrated with myself. The sweater is soft and feather light. I love the dark blue color, but it's so hard to photograph. Here are the details:
Pattern: Simple Wrapover from Alpaca Silk Two by Debbie Bliss
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk DK in Dark Blue
Needles: Bamboo US 7 Circ
Started: December 4, 2006
Finished: March 21, 2007
Notes: After getting through the wonky increases on front panels, all went smooth. In retrospect, I could have made the next size or two down. The alpaca is quite stretchy, which I did not factor in. Lesson learned. I also used 3 yds of ribbon to allow for a wrap all the way around for a front tie, instead of tie in the back.
I have some baby knitting to do for a friend, so I am turning to another Debbie Bliss pattern or two. Watch for details.
