Body is finished

Not a very good picture (are they ever?). maybe I should learn how to use my digital camera instead of just pointing and shooting :-)

I have started on the cuffs and hope to finish them today. I really want to be able to wear this for Thanksgiving...


  • Beautiful job, Kim! I really like the color you chose.

  • WOW Kim, What a great job! I have yet to start mine. Has anyone made the size 46? If so how many skeins of Lambs Pride did you use for the body of sweater? I am considering doing mine in 2 colors and wondering if I have enough yarn with the 6 skeins of Lambs Pride I got.

  • Thanks guys,
    ahrisha...i found the comment you left on an earlier post about the amount of yarn. I am making the size 43.5 which is not on the knitty pattern. I e mailed the designer with a size question and she sent me her original design. Anyway, I don't know if this will help or not but I used 1 full skein for the waist cable and 3 skeins for the body. I just started my 5th skein for the cuffs and think I will use about 1/2 the skein for the two cuffs. I bought 9 skeins (wanted an extra just in case and that is all my lys had) and I am sure I will have at least 1 left over. I think you mentioned you are making yours in tiger lily? If I have extra and you need some maybe we can work out a deal ;-)
