Pattern: my own
Yarn: Knitpicks Shine in “Cloud”, 9 skeins
Needles: Denise US6
Started: September 6, 2005
Finished: October 3, 2005

Fits pretty well, although on the looser, more casual side than I was aiming for – but I like it! And the neckline is a perfect balance of v-ness and bra coverage. Excellent. Plus, the yarn is sooo soft and lovely. I can probably write up the pattern notes if anyone is interested.

There might be another sweater to model soon, as well!

    Whoops! meant to ask ya…any comments on the Knitpicks Shine yarn? I’m thinking of using it for a Picovoli (in Magknits) top, and wondering what you (or anyone else) thought of it?

    I love how you did the neckline on Cloud. If you’d share your pattern notes, that would be great. I have a ton of Shine I’m dying to use and this looks like a great candidate.

    Wow, fantastic sweater! Can’t wait to see what kind of collar you’re doing on the Autumn-ized Marilyn :)

    Perfect staple to any wardrobe! Great job on this sweater – it’s great and it looks wonderful on you.
    I don’t know how you do it – you finish so many projects so beautifully and quickly!!! You must knit as fast as the wind girl! Congrats on more beautiful work.

    Hi, I think that sweater looks great. I actually am using the Shine in cloud to make katy. I might frog it though, I’m not sure how much I like it. And I really like your blog, you have some beautiful knits.

    I would love the pattern or notes on Cloud. I just got a sample card for Shine and wow I have to make Cloud. Let us know when you post the pattern or notes.

    Laura – cloud looks fantastic and I can’t wait to see the second sweater when it’s done.

    Are you kidding? Of course we want the deets for Cloud. It is lovely. Another success.

    Your pattern is great. I really love the v-neck. I, like you have issue with sweaters in the cut especially in the bust area. The sweater provides just the right amount of skin without being too revealing. I await the pattern it is great. I am also sharing the entry with my endowed knitter friends

    I love the Cloud sweater, so cute and pretty. I love it. If you do put up the pattern, I’d love to try it out. That and Autumn. I liked the cable from Simply Marilyn too, but not the big cowl-like turtleneck on the sweater.

    I really like this sweater. The notes for the pattern would be great. I have been looking for a v neck to make.

    Your sweaters are gorgeous! I’ve been looking for ages for a simple v-neck sweater pattern, as I’m not confident enough yet to devise it myself. I would love you to post the pattern notes!
