Pullover

This pullover was knitted from a New Zealand wool "Touch" which is super fine kid mohair and merino wool - very, very soft and warm. I don't care much for knitting in this wool as I tend to drop stitches for some reason. But, admittedly, the feel of the final product is very nice.

The colours are a variegated greens, gold, burgandy, rust and tan. I was pleased that they didn't knit up in a stripey fashion but more blotchy. The colours don't show up well in the photo.

I did steeks for the sleeves and curved them so that I eliminated the drop sleeves. The front neck line is a semi-circular steek. Instead of adding the extra stitches to the last round of ribbing, I added them at the sides on the way up. It worked well.

A new week - a new sweater. I really like it. I find vests are so practical. I am amazed at the lovely projects you turn out so quickly.
