Julissa is off the needles! I chose this project because I wanted to push myself a little (as well as recover ASAP from a froggy debacle). The cables and lace pattern is very well written but definitely not "potato-chip knitting". I'm so glad I did because the end result is, well, pretty darn awesome.
I take a lot of these "smiling on the inside" photos. Taking photos of yourself is hard! meh.
I adjusted the sleeve length and bottom ribbing to accommodate my shorter frame.
I used magic loop for the sleeves. Fell in love with my Knitpicks nickel-plated babies again.
The Malabrigo is so cushy soft and after blocking (and even a whole lot of petting by me and the girls). I didn't notice any pilling at all.
I could live in this sweater! Too bad I live in a season-less city now! I'm sure I'll find some occasion to wear it in the dead of winter here...without a jacket. haha.
Can you tell I have girls?
Although I can tell you I know of at least 2 very cool little boys who think Hello Kitty is the "cat's pajamas". Too much? I though so too.
Happy Wednesday everyone! Don't forget to check out the linky party for this KAL at luvinthemommyhood.
