Use yarn again? Oh man, yes, yes, yes. I wish I could only use these nice yarns all the time. Maybe some day. I've been so spoiled lately with nice yarn and I'm enjoying every knit I can squeeze out of these skeins. =] Thank you mommy and daddy for this lovely yarn!
Project Details and Feedback
Duration of Project: September 27th to October 5th, 2010
Modifications: I wasn't a fan of the cables in the pattern so I decided to change them. I had bought a book with cable stitches and patterns in it. In the book I fell in love with the elongated cable. So I decided to try to do the elongated cable instead. I also decided that I wanted the cables to turn inward at the front, and because I am very particular about everything being even, balanced, symmetrical, etc. so for the cable in the middle of my back I made it alternate between each direction. (The cable pattern I used can be seen in the second picture down.) I'm pretty sure that the cables were my only modifications to this pattern except some adjustments I made as I went to make the underarm seems cleaner.
Make this pattern again? Yes, I think so. This was a very good pattern. Fun, easy, quick and it didn't take that much yarn (which I was hoping for). I am looking forward to being able to wear it. I however do not think that this is one of those patterns where you need or would want more than one at a time. ha! Oh, and I also love how it was done from the top down so that I could make this as long as I wanted without worry and...no seeming!
