A Summer Sweater
Unlike Rowena where there wasn't much knitting but a great deal of finishing, I just finished a sweater that practically knit itself. And when the knitting was done, it was a matter of a few seams and a quick neckline. And it's cute, practical, and had been on my to-do list for years. AND I've never seen anyone else make it. See, I'm not just a follower . . .
Rice Stitch Sweater
Pattern: from Family Circle Easy Knitting, Spring 2005
Yarn: Cotton Ease in Candy Blue (only 3 skeins!)
Needles: US 8 Cotton Palace bamboo circs
Notes: I'm not sure the neckline was that low in the photo in the magazine - it's just decent. But I didn't make any mods and it worked great. Easy to memorize.
Best Thing About This Project: A perfect San Diego and summer sweater.
Stash Tally: Down to 509 skeins and 107,000+ yards. That's a whole 1,000 yards down!
