Right. So. Back with the posting thing. Anyway, I made a sweater. Well, this sweater I made back in February, but I never showed it off here, so here we go:

Pattern: Hetty
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Rialto Aran, seven balls
Needles: US 8/5 mm
Mods: Um, I’m sure I made some but I don’t remember?

This is actually the perfect sweater for this time of year–warm, but sometimes a little chilly in the evenings or when the breeze kicks up. So it’s sort of relevant for the several month delay in posting? In any case, I really love how it came out. It’s a wee bit short, but it’s a cropped sweater and I was limited in yardage anyway. It works well over dresses and that particularly long top it’s modeled on.

I think I had a dye lot issue, so one of the sleeves is a slightly different color than the rest of the sweater, but I don’t know that you’d necessarily see it as a casual observer of my clothing. It didn’t bother me to do anything about it anyway.

In other news: I went to Maryland Sheep and Wool! It was an excellent time and I spent way too much money, but I got to pet sheep and snuggle an angora bunny and buy part of a raw Romney fleece to process. Whee!
