Funky Sweater

Another one down. I just finished this funky sweater from the Debbie Bliss Cathay book. It's called a poncho sweater and uses about thirteen 50g balls of Debbie Bliss cathay yarn (50% cotton/35% Viscose microfibre/15% silk) and size US 5 needles.

While I'm afraid this might not be a very flattering fit, I do believe this is my new favorite sweater. It's comfortable and unique and very fun. Don't look too closely unless you want to discover some glaring errors, like the fact that the back was knitted using two different dye lots and is distinctly striped. I have decided to label this sweater "rustic," so any flaws I may spot from here on out just add to its rustic nature, like those tags on clothes that try to explain away odd fiber or color variations by calling them "the nature of the fabric." That sad little mess on the back of the collar edge where I dropped a few stitches is the nature of the poncho sweater.

I'm amazed (and ashamed) at the lightning speed that you knit, Scout! it's a fascinating design - and looks very good on you.

You are so quick with your knitting, It didn't seem long ago you were asking which one to knit, good choice and you do look great in it.

Thanks, all of you. I do knit pretty quickly--it would do me well to slow down and pay attention to details.
