Pattern: February Lady by Pamela Wynne
Yarn: Knightsbridge by The Fibre Company
Needles: Size 9 (and 11 for bind offs)
Not only have I finally finished a sweater in a season where I can wear it, but it's the February Lady sweater, so I drank the koolaid by making it. That being said, I totally understand the koolaid. It's an easy pattern, and looks good when it's done. I'd definitely consider making it again, if I didn't have 5000 other sweater patterns in my queue.
I loved working with the Fibre Company Knightsbridge yarn. It's so incredibly soft, and I like the flecks of color (though this yarn is so dark it's hard to see them). I'm trying to figure out if it's still an active yarn, because I'm definitely buying more if I can find it.
I also finished sock #1 of the Rivergrass socks. If we weren't having out of town company next week, I'm on enough of a roll that I might have been able to finish the pair by the end of the month. I do have the rest of this week, and a partial week once the company's gone, so I suppose it's possible, but we'll see.
