Trellis, take two

Ahhhh, much better:

I frogged the green. And wound my three skeins of natural 100purewool with my brand-spankin'-new swift. A much better choice!! I love love love knitting with this yarn. No more swearing. It was totally the yarn, not the pattern.


I had intended to dye this yarn, but it's just perfect for this sweater. It's every bit as scrumptious as Malabrigo, but a little bit lighter weight. If I could afford to buy enough to justify the shipping cost, I'd defenitely have a storage problem. I'm crossing my fingers for another co-op....

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Green Gable is cute, no? Go for it, Julie!
Your sweater looks beautiful in that yarn just as it is. As a fairly new knitter myself, I love the challenges of trying new techniques as well as the finished products.

Nice - I like that cable pattern a lot! It was nice meeting you at the Sweater Wizard demo - I was the one you wrote down the knittinghelp.com info for on the short rows - thanks! I've been knitting for the exact same length of time (January 2005). Isn't it great how much we've picked up in such a short time??!! I love it!
