February Lady Sweater by Pamela Wynne
Yarn: Jojoland Wool, colorway 438
Needles: US Size 7
Dates: Started - June 19, 2008, Completed - August 31, 2008
This sweater knit up relatively quick. The gull lace pattern is easy to memorize and recognize on the needles so you can pick it up and put it down with out having to check a row counter or tally sheet. I knit the sleeves before I finished the body, just to save myself form Purl Row Syndrome - I'm not the purl stitches biggest fan and having to do entire rows of it was a little daunting at times.
I cast off on Sunday afternoon and being very proud of myself, I decided to wear my FLS on my date with Wayne. I wore it for two hours before giving in to the 90 degree heat, but she's definitely coming to Mexico.
I didn't make any mods, but now I wish I would have followed the Rav crowd and made the sleeves a bit slimmer.
Again, I love it!
