The yarn came Monday afternoon! Now I can turn this:
into this for this year’s Summer Sweater KAL. The yarn is Cascade 220 in Summer Sky heather, one of the most truly gorgeous yarns my eyes have beheld. Mmmm.
Though the unstretched ribbing looks like a sweater fit for a child, it does indeed fit over my hips. I tested it just to be sure. I’m making the 37″ size and I might add a tad more waist shaping than called for in the pattern, but it looks like it will be an interesting part of the journey when I get to the top, and in the meantime, the subtle heathered blues will enchant me. The KAL started a week ago, so I’d better get going! I have a couple of secret projects that may slow me down, but I’ll make time for the beautiful Coda.
