Not quite sleeping in it
Well, I'm not quite sleeping in it, but I might if it wasn't a turtleneck. I actually finished it in Spring 07, but didn't have cold enough temps to start wearing it til this winter. It's the Evergreen Aran, by Kristen Nicholas. Yarn was the recommended and now not available Classic Elite Evergreen, a recycled wool that is supposed to have cashmere in it. I managed to find it on ebay some time ago, but was one skein short, so, its a bit shorter which I actually like. I'm not a bobble wearer, though they're fun to make, so I didn't add them. Knit up on US 5 and 7s. Fun cables, though they require close attention, at least for me.
I just got back from California, where I was having a "mom" visit- and hmm, what a coincidence- Stitches West just happened to be a 20 minute drive away. I got to the Market on Friday, and had a little splurge. More on that next time. Maybe even some photos.
