I have no idea what that means.

Anyway, finished Tubey!



There are more pics and info on ze b-log.

What a fun pattern!  Pretty lightning quick, as sweaters go, and quite versatile.

I used knitpicks andean silk.  I love that yarn!  It's really soft and has minimal itch-factor, especially after you wash it.  And it's cheap!

When I first saw this sweater, I wasn't a big fan, but the more versions I see, the more I like it.  I really like your color choices, and it looks so comfortable, yet really hip.  About how long did it take you?  I'm a pretty slow knitter, and I'm just starting to learn how to knit in the round, but it would be nice to work on something that wouldn't take years (like Peppermint Twist is).  The other thing I like about this project is that there's not a lot of seaming.  Great job - I would wear that all the time.

Wow, I bet peppermint twist would take four thousand years! 
Well, I got my yarn at the beginning of February, and since i actually had project monogamy for once (it was hard, since I have serious project ADD), I finished it about a week ago.  Having the flu and having a couple days of straight knitting time helped a lot.  It's a super project to knit while you're watching something, and I even could read a book while doing it.

Thanks for the nice comments, they made my week much better! Smiley
