And we have sweater

Look at her... she's just so beautiful...

The sweater... not the girl. The girl looks like she's on drugs and doesn't brush her hair. I have no idea who that person is. I assure you that *I* do not look like I'm on drugs, I have a charming rather than creepy smile and I do brush my hair.

Here's a better view of the pattern on the sleeve.


Specs:

Pattern: Phoebe Pullover from knitpicks.com (based on Elizabeth Zimmerman's percentage saddle shoulder sweater)

Start/End: 2/15/2007 - 5/18/2007

Yarn: Knit Picks Wool of The Andes. 11 balls (not 12, definitely not 13!)

Size: 40" around and 26" from top of shoulder to bottom of ribbing

Needles: size 6 KnitPicks DPN's on sleeves size 6 36" AddiTurbo Circular on body

Mods: I decided not to do the mesh pattern on the shoulders and instead just do the straight lines of twisted stitches. I decided to do this because it is more aesthetically pleasing. It has nothing to do with it being really hard to do the mesh pattern on the wrong side while doing the saddle shoulders. Nothing at all. How dare you even suggest it. Otherwise, that's it.

I feel victorious. I must return to family obligations now... but I just wanted you all to know that I made the greatest sweater ever.
