Screw the Tilly Thomas! Why use that when you can sub a perfectly good yarn? Like, say, Berroco Denim Silk?
I opted to do only 10 rows of the neck detail, then bound off purlwise so it would match the other bound off edges.
I did 20 straight rows after picking up the sleeve stitches so the lace panels would line up.
I am so in love with this sweater. I used 12 hanks of the Denim Silk (plus about a foot of another to finish binding off the neck - grr) and I knit the medium. As you see, it's a bit roomy but that's intentional. The gauge was a bit off but I'm happier with a roomy fit.
I would post this over in completed projects, but I haven't seen other SKBs over there, so I'll leave it just here. I have also blogged it HERE
