Marigold in Green

in Sweater

Started a new Sweater the other day.  I’ve had this beautiful wool, Paton’s Classic Wool, Moss Heather color,  sitting in my stash and finally found a good project for it.  I only have 6 skeins of this yarn.  For a typical sweater, I’d use at least 9-10 skeins.  I saw this sweater in Interweave Knits, Summer 2010 it’s called Marigold and knew this yarn would be perfect.  It’s short sleeve so I won’t need as much yarn, and the cool lace pattern also lends itself to not much yardage needed.

I’ve never made such a “fitted” sweater.  Usually I go for loose, sometimes baggy, easy-to-get-into sweaters.  I plan on making this sweater for my sister whose figure is much more suited to a fitted sweater than mine.

It’s knitting up quick and after a day of knitting I’m half way up the back on the way to the armhole cast offs.  I plan on working both front panels at the same time, while taking a tad longer to knit, this will ensure both front panels to be exactly the same length.

My goal is to have this done by mid-June.

Update:  Finished Sweater July 19, 2010.  Finished a few other projects while knitting this sweater.
