Hey, Bears Fans!

in Knitting Pure and Simple, Yoda

Go, Bears! They actually won a playoff game! The Superbowl could happen! I was actually at the last playoff game that was at home before this one. It was cold and crappy and they lost. That is the biggest let down…you sit through 4 hours or more of crappy cold weather and they lose! Well, that is not the case this time…only the Pats won yesterday, too, and they are formidable opponents.Kps_kpmainline

I also completed my first project of 2007 this weekend! I decided a sweater really did need two sleeves after all.

Project Details

Pattern: Knitting Pure and Simple Neck Down Pullover for Women #9724
Yarn: Knit Picks Main Line in Butter Pecan
Needles: Addi Turbos size 8
Notes: Instead of roll cuffs and neck, I added ribbing. I also changed the raglan a bit to be a little wider. I like the detail that provides.

Yoda was so impressed with the finished sweater that she decided she wanted in on the final shot of me wearing the sweater. I think this is a great color….no Yoda hairs show!

What a great picture. The sweater looks lovely on you and lil Miss looks happy as can be. That would have made a great christmas card picture. hehe

The sweater looks fantastic.

I love the sweater…however, Yoda looks very displeased. I think she should pack her bags and move to DeKalb.

great job! the yarn seems to drape very well. whenever i get off my self-imposed yarn hiatus, i’ll look for that yarn.

I used the same yarn, same color, for a project. As soon as I saw your sweater, I wondered if that’s what it was! It looks great, and really comfortable!
