sweater: post-spun, pre-knit

I've been spinning for a sweater the last few weeks, using Northboundknitting bfl in ‘Lake Oastler’, which is one of my favourite colour combinations of all time. I started with 20 oz and spun a 2-ply yarn, getting approx. 1200 yds of light worsted/ dk weight. It will be a pullover, as soon as I have some time to knit it up. The idea's sketched out and has lived in my head for several months, so I hope I can do this yarn justice.

Happy weekend.

  1. I can tell that your sweater is going to be gorgeous. I'm looking forward to seeing what stitch details you're going to use.
