1  FO Noro Striped Raglan Sweater Goodness in Knitting: Completed Projects by ratdogforever on: February 11, 2008 12:02:30 PM
I finished it last night and I'm in love with it!

I used simple top-down raglan calculations to get a good fit. The yarn is cascade 220 in Rainier Heather, with 2-row stripes of noro kureyon. It's comfy and so warm!
There are more details on my ravelry (my name is "dazzleships").

ETA: Thanks guys!
I would totally recommend using Noro this way. I actually had a few random balls from an impulse buying spree a couple months ago when I decided I HAD TO HAVE IT...I got home, started knitting with it and quickly realized it is WAY too much of a good thing. Kureyon is at its best when you cut it with something. It's also really easy to cut out the weird color changes that occasionally happen (pink to greenish orange red puke color to soft yellow? Why not just skip that pukey color entirely?)
This sweater is a pretty awesome stash buster that way. Cascade 220 is reasonably priced, and if you have some crazy colors yarn lying around you can't find a special purpose for, you can use it for the stripes.

P.S. I have no idea what "ETA" means. Oh these internets...
