Ooh, I really like it. It looks a bit like one of the patterns in Fitted Knits, and as usual I am blanking on the name.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

That looks a lot better on you than it does off, if you see what I mean Cheesy

I bought loads of fuzzy synthetic yarn when I first started knitting. It didn't take long to work out that if you're going to use it at all, it's best used along with something plain.

Thanks for all of the comments, you guys!   I'm not usually one to wear anything that annoyingly colorful, but the yarn needed to be used.

lady_cyanide, I'm not too far away!  I'm in Lafayette for now trying to finish school, though I'm not originally from here.  I grew up south of New Orleans, and moved there for college, but well, we all know how that story goes.  I've really gotten to like this area though.   Smiley

i have some cache lying around after i purchased a few myself. only took one to make a calorimetry, so... Smiley
i like the idea of adding it into a project as kind of an accent color/yarn. gives you more possibilities.
great job!

Wow! I'm loving this and like some here I wasn't so sure I would when I read Moda Dea. Kinda shows some biases are really unmerited. Great, great job. I want one, too.

I'm joining the 'pleasantly surprised' crew - I don't think I'd have thought of that colour combination, but it actually looks really nice and the fit looks great for you.

The funny thing is that I almost bought some of that yarn at Wal-Mart this morning!  I was waiting to have some paint mixed and I needed to kill some time browsing and I ended up in the yarn aisle (of course) and that yarn caught my eye.  I reconsidered, because I have so much of that impulse buy yarn that I never use!

Your sweater is cute, though.  I like what you did with it.
