Okay--I really only joined the fun on the night of the first, but I was hoping to have used up the first ball of yarn by now. I'm really, really, REALLY close,
but I am obviously working with magic yarn, because I've been almost
at the end of the ball of yarn for an entire day. Not that a
never-ending supply of yarn is anything to sneer at, but I sort of
already HAVE that. It's called the stash. If something were going to magically never be all used up, why couldn't it have been my bank account? Sigh..........
Aside from being mired in the never-ending-ball-of-yarn, I love this
sweater. The pattern is interesting, but not so complicated that I have
to be checking the chart on every row,
and I love the shaping. The only concern is that while I am getting
gauge, gauge is measured over a pattern involving cable and ribbing, so I
think I could have gotten "gauge" with about 4 different needle sizes.
I suppose the good side to this is that it could also fit me in about 4
different sizes, but if I have THAT sort of weight fluctuations, a
sweater is NOT going to be my greatest problem........
