I did just finish the tilted duster!  Grin  My New Year's resolution is a sweater a month.  I'm on track!

I used Paton's classic merino.  Its  a little scratchy, but softened up nicely when blocked.  The good news is, it doesn't appear to be pilling!  The bad news is, this isn't a yarn to be worn next to the skin.  But since this is a jacket/cardi - this isn't really an issue.

I have malabrigo merino worsted in praline to go towards this.  That was a great idea to write everything out to your understanding before knitting.

I wish I knew how to do it from top to bottom to have less seaming.  Aye.  We shall see how this turns out.

I finished mine last month. It's knit in Malabrigo on size 9s. I used canarysactuary's modifications for knitting it in the round. I love it!!
