waiting for sunshine

It's been gray and rainy the past few days and I've been waiting to take pictures of my new sweater. It was supposed to be my late winter/early spring sweater. The pieces had been knit but I didn't put it together in last weekend. Finally I have an an FO! It's a great sweater for fall.

Pattern: Klaralund by Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton
Yarn: Noro Silk Garden #34
Needles: US8

I still have my reservations about the stripes, I'm not sure I like the garter stitch stripe across the chest...

My other site is a work from home site. I recently decided to build my own income and I thought I could kill two birds with one stone.

Keep up the great work, I'll be back soon.

I'm working on a shawl for my husband's grandmother in SG #34. It is a great fall colorway, isn't is? Your sweater looks cozy!

I love it! that colorway is so pretty, and the stripes look good on you. I did a few rows on my Klaralund last night. Such a easy and fun knit.

Have a good one, Eyeleen :)
