finished Cavern

I finally got off my butt and took some FO pics of Cavern!

Pattern: my own
Yarn: Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece, bought from ebay as mis-dyed (dark brown/purple rather than black), 4 skeins
Needles: Denise US7
Started: August 24, 2005
Finished: September 24, 2005

I really wanted to use buttons for this, but once I got them on, it just looked weird. The raglan shaping is just right; I’ll have to use this as a template sweater!

    Lovely! It looks great–the pattern, the colour, the yarn…everything! Good move on the button elimination, a wise decision.

    Great sweater! That is really cute. I hope you consider publishing the pattern as I would really like one of these myself :-)

    Cuuuuuuute! It looks like a sort of ballet sweater without the wraparound. Ooh, I like it a lot.

    Very, very cute! The tie front is a perfect alternative to buttons – I like it!

    I love it! I know how you feel about the buttons. I originally wanted buttons on my Clementine sweater, but had to jettison them. Sometimes a knit just speaks to you and says “I do not want buttons!”

    Looks like you might become the next Kim Hargreaves! I’m looking fwd. to seeing the pattern online.

    That looks great on you! It’s going to be an awesome winter knit, wearable with just about everything. I would wear it with jeans and a tank underneath, or dress it up with grey pants and boots. I love knits that just fit in the wardrobe perfectly, you know?

    LOVE the top – it’s gorgeous and I think it buttons wouldn’t have added anything to it – great as is!
