My New Sweater


I just finished this wool cabled sweater...for me! A little Christmas present to myself. It is so warm. Love it! I made it using Sonoma Twist wool yarn from Briar Rose Fibers. Chris dyes such beautiful yarns. I used two different hanks and switched between the yarns every two rows to get the lovely stripes. I can't wait to get started with this knit-along. I'm not sure what I will be knitting yet...I have such a long list of projects to choose from!

Thanks ladies!

Kniterella, the pattern is the cabled turtleneck in the Yarn Girls Beyond the Basics book. (shown in pink) I just ended it with a crew neck.
