Finally! I finished it about a week ago. It’s just as fabulous as I wanted it to be, fits perfectly, and is the best shade of red. Rav the details here.
As much as I procrastinated at the end there, I so want another one of these. Actually, several, in many different colors and weight yarns. I do loves me some basic sweaters.
I’m knitting it in heavier than called for yarn, Louet Gems Fingering, in Caribbean Blue. In case you didn’t know, this stuff does indeed come in an 1/2 pound (that’s 8oz) cone put up. I think I will probably use just one, but I have two, just in case. If I do end up only needing one, I know a certain man who will be receiving many new blue socks. Yup indeed.
