And now a shot with one of my favorite dogs:
5 - 6 skeins (sorry, but I can't really remember the exact amount I used) of Cascade 220 in color number 8013. I made both the body and the arms longer than the pattern called for and also ended up making a larger size sleeve than the body size I made. The first sleeve I made seemed like it would be a little too snug and so I went up in size. I wore it to work today and am quite happy with my new sweater.
I'm hoping it will be a sweater that I pick up often although I may block it just slightly larger the next time I wash it. I'll decide that as I wear it more. This is my third completed item from one of Bonne Marie's patterns. They are well written and if you do happen to need help, all you need to do is send an email and she replies back quickly. I actually do have a fourth item from one of her patterns almost completed - a Ribby Cardi - but I've been stalled by the idea of putting in the zipper. 2008 will be the year that I conquer that fear!
