To Knit or not to Knit...Is that a Question?

    * Noro Iro, 80% Wool and 20% Silk, color #63
    * Valley Yarn Berkshire Bulky, 85% wool/15% alpaca, color Red Purple

Inspiration: Noro Bradshaw Sweater from Noro Knits
Needles: Size 10.5
Size: 38-40
Yardage: Approx. 1048 yards or 8 skeins of Iro, 3 skeins of Berkshire Bulky
Modifications: Knit the body to 29″ instead of 34 3/4″, knit the collar to 9″ instead of 14″, only increased sleeve cap stitches to 60 sts in an effort to reduce the bat wing effect in the underarm.
Enjoyment Factor: 8.5
Knit Time: August 24 - September 29

My obsession with Bradshaw began when I bought the Noro Knits book for the Butterfly pattern. The contrasting collar and cuffs caught my attention straight away and possibly even more than Butterfly, if that is possible. As soon as I got it home I google searched this baby to death and only came up with one other instance of the sweater. How could that be?? Such a wonderful sweater going unrevealed. Well, that is when I google search the yarnthe rest is history, or at least to be continued later in my blog post...

Wow! That is beautiful! I loooove that color purple, but sadly I don't wear it well. You, on the other hand, look fabulous!  Shocked It looks very warm and just in time for fall.  Smiley

Gorgeous!  I have always loved that pattern, too.  I buy every one of the Noro books, because there is always a must-knit in each of them.  I do like to see finished items, though.  It is nice to see it somewhere other than a photo shoot for the book.  Sometimes they don't always look as nice in real life, but yours definitely does.  I am going to have to add it to my ever-growing list of must-knits.  I just searched out your Doctor's bag.  Another beautiful knit.  You have great taste in your knits!

Beautiful sweater...looks great on you! 
I like seeing pics of what someone has made and found that usually they look soooo much better than the picture that comes with the pattern...most times the pattern picture has turned me off of a pattern because of the color they chose, the way the person wears it, etc
