Indigo Finale 靛青




ProjectIndigo for Green Planet
PatternIndigo by Mishellee Zaharis
YarnRosy Green Wool, Cheeky Merino Joy, Sport Weight
Yardage: 700 yards
Needles: Size 7 & 8
Cast on: January 27, 2013
Cast off: February 16, 2013
Cost: $0 (shop sample)
Previous entries: start, progress
Notes: The pictures of the sweater are taken at Green Planet Yarn where it stays permanently as shop sample. The yarn, Rosy Green Wool, is new on the market and new to the store. As I mentioned previously, it's super green, organic, humane, throw all the good words together and you get this yarn. It's very soft and smooth, has a very nice drape, but there is something about it makes it feel highly processed. The verdict is still out on if I like it or love it.

On an unrelated note, I taught my first knitting class on Thursday night. A group of friends decided to learn to knit together, so we put together a private class. I taught five ladies to cast on, knit, purl and cast off in less than two hours. I'm rather proud of myself!

Happy Friday and Happy February! Join the party on Andrea's blogTami's blog, and leave me a comment!

I absolutely love the commitment that yarn company has made. I'm so glad that you talked about it here, I'm going to have to give them a try sometime. The top is gorgeous obviously, just like everything you make! I would be a little sad about not being able to wear it though : (

Your sweater is wonderful!

As always, another grand knit FO! I'm with Pumpkin, too bad you won't get to wear it (pouty face).

And whoohoo on you first knit class! If you make it up this way, I'll hold a crochet class, ok? :)

I love the shape and color and am also a little horrified that it will spend its days unworn! Sighhh.
Congratulations on your new 'teaching career'!! I wish you were closer, since working with you might tempt me to try something I've avoided all my life! :)
