I Love the Smell of a Finished Sweater in the Morning

by Amanda on April 17, 2007

in Wicked, Yoda, Zephyr Style

In between writing eight billion papers, cleaning the house, and finishing a poker table, I managed to finish a sweater. I know, I am surprised, too. Wicked is a quick knit that looks good in the end. I decided to go for "in between" on the length of the arms. I think it is pretty flattering…sometimes cap sleeves show off the B-I-N-G-O arms, and long sleeves can take forever to complete.

Pattern:Wicked by Zephyr Style
Yarn: Elann’s Peruvian Highland Wool in color #0744  Harvest Heather
Needles: Addi Turbos size 7
Notes: While I did add some length to the body,  I do think I could have gottenYodabed away
with a couple more inches….especially if I wanted to wear it to work. I opted not to add the pocket because of the whole work thing, but I guess I always could go back and add it. It was what drew me to the pattern to begin with.

Yoda was less than thrilled. This is one tired pug. Here she is guarding here new bone from Grandma. She also never lies in this bed, so I guess she must be tired!!!

***Edited to Add: To define B-I-N-G-O arms, think about those old women with flabby underarms that swing when they get BINGO (here’s an example)

Dumb question – what are BINGO arms?
