Last week's scarf is going to Kathryn who blogs at Kathryn's Brain. I hope it will keep Kathryn nice and warm while she tends to the alpacas in the snow.
Project: Firelight 火光
Pattern: Firelight, by Agnes Kutas-Kereztes, Knitty Winter 2011
Yarn: Peruvian Wonders Fine Alpaca, 80% alpaca, 20% wool, from Peru
Yardage: about 1092 yards in stash, used almost all
Needles: Size 3 & 6
Cast on: August 7, 2013
Cast off: December 8, 2013
Cost: About $30Notes: The first picture is closer to the true color. I had such a strong desire to use up all or at least most of the yarn, I decided there will be sleeves (the pattern is for a vest). Lesson learned, it takes a long time to knit a cable sweater in sport weight yarn, and it takes even longer if you don't have a pattern to follow. The sleeves ended up different sizes because I forgot to change to larger needle on the first one. I decided my right arm will be happier with a larger sleeve. Maybe some later day I will redo the sleeves but for now I declare the sweater is done.
Happy Friday! Join the party on Andrea's blog, Tami's blog, and leave me a comment!
