I started another new sweater (or two)…
This one’s the Tree Jacket from Zephyr Style. I’m using The Fibre Company’s Terra, which is just a fantastic, fantastic yarn. As others have noted, though, it’s pretty spendy. I got this batch on sale : )
The irregularity of the yarn, both texture and colour, work really well with this pattern. Unfortunately, I don’t have a heck of a lot of yarn – I only have seven skeins of this colour (Acorn) and then three more of a light blue.
I think this is how things are going to play out, based on how far I’ve gotten with two skeins: three skeins for the yoke (maybe a little less), then one skein for each of the sleeves and the remainder for the body. So when I run out of yarn on each sleeve, I’ll start the cuff in the contrast colour. Hopefully the body will end up long enough! The lace in the body should stretch the yarn a little farther.
In other news, Dr. Steph gave me this:
Which is so cute and awwww! The rules say: “Give the award to 10 people whose blogs bring you happiness and inspiration and make you feel happy about blogland. Let them know by posting a comment on their blog so they can pass it on. Beware you may get the award several times.”
Steph’s list is faboo, so here’s ten more great ones (no particular order):
Have a nice evening, everyone!
