Well, folks, I have finally gotten a chance to post photos of the finished Pumpkin Ale Sweater.

She's warm and snuggley, and just the ticket to complete a fall ensemble.

I barely scraped by, finishing it minutes before our last Thanksgiving dinner engagement. That's cutting it a little too close.

We had two Thanksgivings to attend, and I missed my deadline for the first one at lunch time. I was actually finishing the bind-off and pockets in the car! Try sewing with a sharp needle as a passenger in a car and count how many times you get stabbed.

I might have lost the time-battle, but won the war in the end.

One of the things that I like best about this sweater is that the cables are heavy in the back, and simple in the front. It's a yen-yang effect for knitting.

Project: Pumpkin Ale Sweater by Ysolda
Started: February 2014
Finished: November 27th, 2014
Needles: Size US5 and US7
Yarn: 11.5 skeins of Elann's Peruvian Highland Wool in "Harvest Heather"
Modifications: Needle size, and adding a couple of rows to the pocket and garter border


For more photos and info on this sweater, please read my blog post on it: http://knitting-up-a-storm.blogspot.com/2014/12/fo-pumpkin-ale-sweater.html

Beautifully done!

I love that the back is so detailed and yet the front is so calm and simple...those kinds of designs are my favorite!

It will be a classic sweater in your wardrobe for some time!
