I love the way it looks and I sincerely hope that when I try it on, just a few minutes from now, that I remain as pleased with how it looks.
You can see my major change from the pattern. The pattern has the sleeves entirley in stockinette stitch, but I kind of like the way it looks with garter stitch tops. It was also the easiest way to manage the colour shift. At the end of the garter, the colur changes. Easy peasy.
I did have one problem though.
I thought about ordering another cone in a 2 ply, but when it came down to it, I am in a sweater knitting mood, and I want to stay in that sweater knitting mood. I am going to hold two strands together for the rest of the garment.
So far so fair. As ever, when I am working with Custom Woolen Mills Mule Spinner 2 ply or any of their yarns, I wonder why I don't knit with them more. It is just that good.*
