I finally finished the sweater I started before Christmas. I'm very pleased with the way it turned out. The pattern is "Very Cool V-Neck" from Better Homes and Gardens' hipknits. It's knit in Brown Sheep Cotton Chenille in Columbine Blue. Nice easy pattern. hipknits is full of fun, easy designs.
Technically, this is not my first sweater. I knit two others years ago and was never happy with either of them. I was afraid to attempt another sweater for a long time, but this group inspired me to try again. I'm glad I did!
And now a question: Is anyone familiar with KnitPicks Shine Sport yarn? I have a sweater pattern that calls for sport weight cotton yarn and this stuff comes in great colors and is easy on the budget. Any comments?
