Me me me!  I'm not sure yet on what yarn I'm going to use, but I have a serious crush on this sweater.  I'm thinking this would look rather smart in a solid color.  I'm not too crazy about the self striping yarns although I think it works for this sweater.


I scored some Patons Merino Wool in black on sale this weekend at Michael's and I am going to do a gauge swatch and see if it would work for this sweater.   It will be much plainer than if I used the Rowan Tapestry, but what can I say?  I'm a plain jane to a fault.  Smiley

What yarn are you using?

Hooray!  Cheesy

I thought I was on my own!  I'm using the tapestry - It's just too bizarre, I had to work with it.  I mean...soybean protein?! That's so cool! If I get hungry when I'm wearing it, does it double up as a snack?

Anyway, I'm almost finished on the back, so hoping to be doing the shaping soon!

Well, I've finished (here it is, blocking), but the neckline on mine is huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge! It's pretty low too.  

This is a direct quote from Mr Kinkyknit when I tried it on:

"Yes, it does look wierd, but it draws attention to yout tits, and that's never a bad thing"

I'll try to get a pic of it on me later.

cool~~ would love to see you in it.

I'm on sleevie island. I quite like how Tapestry feels, soft and drapey. And it get "mohairy" as I knit with it.
