I'm so. so. so terrible at posting.

So I finished this... mm... like mid-summer last year, hahaha Smiley I originally used the pattern from the "Beginner's Top-Down Raglan" pattern -->https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=152316.0 but kinna mixed it in with the yoke for the SKB (aka the Simple Knit Bodice, which is beautiful and I never finished, of course).

Long story short, I kinda made it up.

I used Caron's Simply Soft in um... black and purple. woo. And some form of circular needle because I totally payed attention.

On to the pics!


Color is a bit wonky on this one... but still, full shot, woo.


more to the real color. Still a bit more royal than this, but whatevs. and my hair is wet.

So yeah. Hooray for sweaters in the middle of summer that I promptly forget about once its actually cold!

Have old jeans, pillowcases, or t-shirts? I'll take them! I'm also always looking for the sleeves to women's long sleeved shirts!

Love your sweater. The color combo plays off really well.

I love stripes! Great colorcombo and the shape is nice Smiley
I wonder if I will ever have enough patience to knit a sweater... Do you remember how long it took?

I remember it taking a while, but I do remember being stunned at how quickly it went. I think i used sze 9 needles? that seems right.
