Excuse the mirror. I am super happy with the way this turned out. I wore it to work on Friday, out to lunch with a friend, and then to see Wilco last night. (Perhaps the best show I’ve ever seen. Period.)
Here’s one more shot of the neckline:
I also have a few goodies to share. These arrived in record time from The Loopy Ewe. My favorite bag was stolen a few weeks ago when my car window was smashed, so I decided to look for another cavernous bag to haul around with me. I settled on the Namaste Malibu, and I love it.
This bag is deceptively large — I can easily imagine a sweater’s worth of yarn tucked into one side — and the center zip pocket is the perfect size for a sock or a dishcloth in progress. Since I was already placing an order, I picked up some gorgeous Shibui sock yarn in honey. (It matches the bag.)
WordPress was a bit cranky last night, so it has taken me roughly 10 hours to actually hit publish. Planning to do some frolicking with the dog this morning before heading up to Santa Fe for more high school rugby and touristy fun stuff. Maybe I’ll remember to take some pictures…
Yay on all three counts! I particularly love the sock yarn; it’s very similar to the color of my Icarus. I love that subtle variation of color. The sweater looks great!
Aw, pretty! Knits and purchases both. I’m so jealous that you saw Wilco. Yay for a good week!
Your Rusted Root looks great!!! Perfect fit and excellent knitting – what a terrific sweater!
Yes, you should DEFINITELY be happy with how this turned out. It fits you perfectly! And it’s so cute! I love how you’re wearing it with the skirt and long-sleeved shirt underneath.
P.S. Totally jealous you got to see Wilco…
