. . . And, We're Back!
Here's a view of the front:
One with a very surprised-looking P:
And one from the back to show that groovy waist shaping:
Pattern: Nantucket Jacket, Interweave Knits Winter 2006
Yarn: Louisa Harding Kashmir Aran, Color 12 (grey)
Started: 11/1/2007 (ish)
Finished: roundabout 3/30/2007
Comments: As I noted here, I had a heck of a time getting gauge when I started, but all that ripping out paid off--it is probably the best-fitting sweater I've ever knitted for myself. I added barely an extra inch to the body, between the end of the waist shaping and the armholes. Otherwise, I followed the pattern pretty closely. I've been wearing this sweater a lot since finishing it, and it's one of those sweaters that gets oohs and aahs from everyone once they realize that I knit it myself. So if you've been on the fence about making this sweater, go for it--it's fun to knit and looks a lot harder than it actually is!
