Now that I've got those socks finally finished, I've turned my sights back onto sweaters. It has been annoying hot lately so I've had to be a bit more careful in my project selection. After some rummaging in the stash and queue, I've ended up with this:
The pattern is a free one from Vogue called Off the Shoulder Pullover and the yarn is Rowan Wool Cotton in a color called Billberry fool. I figure a cotton blend for a roomy shoulder baring sweater will be appropriate enough for an England summer. The combination of the color and pattern intrigues me and I'm hoping I can pull off the Flashdance flashback that I'm anticipating will result.
Slight alteration to the pattern already: I'm doing the 1x1 ribbing as a twisted rib. I've already done 3" of it but I need to do 8". I'll let you know if end up regretting my modification and stab my eyes out.
